Testing at FHDC Communities in Marion and Polk Counties

As the pandemic continues to plague families and communities across the country, BIPOC communities continue to be disproportionately affected.  With FHDC residents prominently working essential labor on the front lines of food and agricultural production, we have partnered with several organizations to ensure needs being met on site, at their homes, easily accessible. Thanks to a growing partnership with Marion County Health Department, Alluvium Mobile Health Care, Mano a Mano, and volunteers, last week we distributed 300 KN 95 masks for farmworkers and tested 70 residents at Colonia Libertad in Salem. We are continuing to work on regular testing, PPE distribution, food access, and connecting residents with social, economic, and educational services.
