The current health crisis we are facing requires that we meet this present moment with diligence and kindness. I am committed to ensuring that residents, small businesses, and non-profits, that are severely impacted by COVID-19 are supported. Please note that all bars, gyms and entertainment venues are closed throughout Los Angeles County until further notice and that all residents are being asked to stay home for non-essential activities to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
There are many individuals and community based organizations that have stepped up to match the government's efforts in ensuring our most vulnerable populations are taken care of. This page was designed to help share what resources and services are available in our communities.
We will continue to update this information. If there are any helpful resources you would like to add please email info@HollyJMitchell.com. Thank you.
