Dear MMRP Community Partners,

As we all know, there has been great concern throughout our neighborhoods about the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Even so, we want to continue to work hard and serve our neighborhoods during this crisis. Let’s continue to find new and creative ways to reach the people in our 10 neighborhoods. Please, share this information with your communities, families and all who are in search of additional resources.

Thank you
