As we endure the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, this December our main focus will be to continue providing urgent COVID-19 resources, as well as holiday support. We have also included relevant policy information for the upcoming legislative goals and transition.

This holiday season will be different due to social distancing guidelines, which may leave some feeling lonely or anxious. These resources are to help you find ways to celebrate safely while still connecting with loved ones.
