FRI’s specific needs as they relate to Covid-19
The demographic of the Ferguson Road Initiative area in Far East Dallas is made up of a 66% minority population (Hispanic-46%, African American-20%). This demographic, combined with the fact that FRI’s two City Council Districts 7 & 9 comprise the largest senior citizen populations in Dallas, make our community especially vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic. FRI is needed to help marshal information and resources to these populations. It’s imperative that we receive funding that will help us connect our fragile community with the resources and agencies that can provide food, shelter, and clothing during this current crisis.
The immediate needs of the FRI organization during the COVID-19 pandemic is funding that will allow us to do the critical work needed to connect and link our at-risk populations to the resources, programs, and agencies that can help feed, clothe and shelter them.
