In these unprecedented times, a bright spot is the large number of agencies and organizations who are already coming together to provide support for people who have lost employment, need access to food resources, emergency grants, and more. Below is a list, divided into themes, that may help you find answers and resources for some of your most pressing questions right now. Because we are based in New York, many of these resources are New York-specific, but some are national.

The Visual AIDS staff is working from home, and can be reached using each staff member's direct email or at [email protected].
