How You Can Help

There are many different ways to support others if you would like to help during this time. Here are some of the organizations and agencies in need for your support and participation in the fight against COVID-19.

ANGELENOS IN ACTION

Take part in Angelenos in Action! Help track COVID-19 symptoms and slow the spread in our communities.

Angelenos in Action is a new voluntary, text message-based, public health survey of Los Angeles County residents. The goal is to find out how COVID-19 is affecting our health in real time, and identify the areas and communities most in need of resources.

Once a week, survey participants will get a yes/no question about how you are feeling. If you feel unwell, you'll get two more yes/no questions about COVID-19-like symptoms. That's it!

Participating takes a bit of your time, but you'll be helping in a big way. L.A. County residents over the age of 18 can sign up to participate in the survey. Your information and data will be completely private, and you can stop participating anytime.

Ready to sign up? Start at Angelenos in Action or text @PROTECT to 35134. Want more info? Visit the County's program page to see details.

FOOD RELIEF

Organizations like Project Angel Food and the LA Regional Food Bank are working hard to meet the needs of those impacted by COVID-19, as well as individuals who typically need their assistance.

Learn more about how to donate, volunteer or support their efforts by going to Project Angel Food or the L.A. Regional Food Bank.

MENTAL WELLNESS

COVID-19 has put all of us under a lot of stress. It's been challenging to our spirits, and can wear any one down.

You can also help others by sharing information about how to cope and where to get support. There are many resources offering tips for dealing with stress, free meditation programs, peer support, crisis counseling, as well as mental health services.

We have a listing of some of these resources in our Self-Care and Coping section.
