Helpin Resource Roundup 4/10/20

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. Moving forward we’ll be highlighting a few of the resources shared on the Helpin Facebook group each week.

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.

For more resources, or to share something you’ve learned, join the Helpin group here.
