I joined the ZONE in February 2020 as a Census cultural connector to educate the Arabic speaking community about the Census. Then the pandemic started, and my role shifted to a community educator and family advocate helping more than 40 families around the ZONE area.
I enjoy working with the ZONE team as they are all caring and supportive to the community and assisted the families with all the challenges and obstacles during this unprecedented time.
They provided hundreds of food boxes, masks, hygiene and cleaning supplies, diapers, gift cards and voucher so families can get their own needs from the international store in the ZONE. In addition to connecting families to valuable resources like SNAP energy assistance and rental assistance.
The ZONE continues to provide families with all the support during this difficult time.
I am so happy and grateful to be part of this wonderful team.
