    Our agency is in the process is setting up an information and support hotline for our community (titled CART Project). The line is open during business hours (9am-5pm) and is staffed by a community health worker trained to provide up-to-date information about the current COVID-19 situation, health guidelines, and also provide some brief emotional support. Community members only need call their corresponding language line and they will be connected directly with a worker of that language.
