In efforts to support the local small business community and empower entrepreneurs, this series offers a forum to feature, celebrate, and learn the highs and lows of the business ownership journey.
The COVID-19 outbreak has caused considerable hardship within our community, particularly touching vulnerable populations such as our seniors, homeless youth, Baltimore City school students and families, and people living with disabilities.
Johns Hopkins is mobilizing and harnessing our expertise, capabilities, and resources to provide support and relief to those in need in our community. We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and offers for help that we have received from countless members of the Hopkins family and extended community.
To help facilitate a collective and impactful response, this page contains links and information to ensure that we can provide help to some of our community’s most vulnerable residents. Financial resources, in-kind support, or volunteer hours are all are appreciated—please fill out a brief survey to let us know how you can help and we will respond as quickly as possible.
We are all in this together.
Update: The Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Fund has received an overwhelming number of requests for support. All submissions received by April 13, 2020, are currently under review by the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Fund Review Committee. Unfortunately, the fund will not be able to support all requests. However, please continue to submit requests and we will make connections to appropriate resources.
