Helpin Resource Roundup

With the coronavirus continuing to disrupt life for many of us, it’s more important than ever before to share resources and help each other out. On the Helpin Facebook group, the EarnIn community has joined together to create a catalog of useful information. It lists resources related to finances, job loss, access to nutrition, shelter, renter or homeowner services, elder care, and child services, among other categories.

Below are a few highlights that people shared this week. For more resources, or to share something you’ve learned, join the Helpin group here.
