The Paso del Norte Community Foundation is deeply committed to the health and safety of the residents of our region. Working with multiple community partners, we have established six different COVID-19 Response Funds supporting a range of needs in our binational community from funds to support the purchase of PPE for first responders in El Paso and Juarez to funds supporting the most vulnerable including homeless, elderly and food insecure. The Paso del Norte Health Foundation and Fundacion Paso del Norte para la Salud y Bienestar have developed informational websites to share important health, educational and financial resources available to support individuals, families, businesses and organizations during this unprecedented time. Stay up-to-date with the latest information at EPCovid19.org for El Paso and JuarezCovid19.com for Ciudad Juárez. Websites are updated daily.
