Latinx Consortium for Action (LCA)
Emergency Relief Fund

Dear Community members,
Enclosed is the 2020 Impact Report for the Latinx Consortium for Action (LCA) Emergency Relief Fund which was created in response to a need for assistance for Latinx families in Dane County, WI affected by COVID-19.

In addition, please find an important statement below from the LCA about the re-opening of the Emergency Relief Fund in 2021. 

Centro Hispano of Dane County (Centro), member of the LCA, is the fiscal sponsor of the fund.

2020 Impact Report

As we start 2021, COVID-19 continues to deeply impact so many in our community. 

We witness every day the hardships many Dane county Latinx community members face because of this pandemic. Individuals, families, and entire communities have shared with us their struggles with access to safe and affordable housing, food insecurity, concerns over health and safety at the job, limited access to testing, healthcare and mental health, concerns about their children’s education, and having information about the virus that can help guide their social distancing and personal care decisions.
Many of you have reached out to members of the Latinx Consortium for Action (LCA) to express genuine concern and with questions about what you can do to help those in need within the Latinx community. At this moment, the biggest needs for this community are resources so that they can meet their basic needs, especially with rental assistance.

We have now made the collective decision to again stand together.

Through the newly re-opened LCA COVID Relief and Recovery Fund, we will continue to act to ensure our community has the financial resources it deserves and continues to need for basic needs and rental assistance.

By giving to this Fund, you will be donating to the collective efforts of these Latinx service and advocacy organizations - Centro Hispano of Dane County, UNIDOS, Latino Academy of Workforce Development, Latino Chamber of Commerce.  For decades, these organizations have built trust with diverse local Latinx communities because of their work providing services and advocating alongside them on the ground.  

The need is great and your contributions to the LCA Emergency Relief Fund will immediately support those most in need in our community. 

Please join us!
