RESPONSE TO COVID-19
At DSI, we continue to provide resources and support to Community members in response to the COVID-29 Pandemic.
Thanks to the Office of the Borough President of Queens in partnership with Fresh Foods and a host of other Organizations, we have provided over 400 individually packed boxes of food, personal hygiene care packages and baby food and supplies to community members.
We are grateful that with the help of NYUnited, we were able to provide cash assistance to our communities excluded from 4 stimulus packages.
We have also provided cash stipends to undocumented Community members who do not qualify for any of the Federal and state stimulus packages or unemployment benefits.
We have a series of Virtual information sessions to discuss issues and resources touching on the African immigrant Community.
