Who We Are
Contra COVID is an organization dedicated to helping families from marginalized communities
ContraCovid NYC is an organization dedicated to helping marginalized individuals during the Pandemic and beyond. We are a group of students and professionals from across the country who are dedicated to ensuring marginalized individuals have the information needed to empower themselves and their families.
Providing marginalized individuals the information and essential resources needed to thrive – at home and at work.
Realizing the full potential of all individuals to drive a new era of development, growth, and productivity. We strive to create local opportunity, growth, and impact in every client we interact with. We envision a world where everyone has equal access to healthcare and resources in their community.
Social Service Navigators Program
ContraCOVID NYC's Social Services Navigator Program helps to navigate clients through different resources to fulfill their needs. In particular, we focus on resources for housing, finances, employment, food, access to health care, education, transportation, among others. ContraCOVID members schedule phone calls to help non-English speakers translate and navigate online resources such as SNAP, WIC, and online documents.
ContraCOVID NYC's translation team offers English conversation services to Spanish speakers around NYC. Our goal is to make information more accessible to Latinx communities and empower individuals to feel comfortable navigating everyday life in English.
