Program Info for the month of July 2020

Since IINE’s offices closed for in-person services on March 13, 2020, a total of 1,656 unique clients have been served remotely. By site, IINE has provided remote services for 565 clients in Boston (increased by 20 from previous month), 704 in Lowell (increased by 7 from previous month), and 387 in Manchester/Nashua (increased by 28 from previous month).

Thanks to the support of our generous benefactors, IINE’s case management and education staff and volunteers have been able to provide a lifeline to people disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 impact. Below is a summary of IINE’s emergency relief services since the start of the pandemic:

  • 649 instances of emergency employment support
  • 1,041 provisions of emergency food and supplies
  • 147 instances of emergency housing support
  • 53 cases of emergency medical support
  • 1,051 instances of emergency public benefits support
  • 1,201 wellness checks
  • 610 instances of emergency Adult Education support
  • 226 instances of emergency cash assistance
  • 221 youth (same as last month)

Please consider supporting IINE at this time so that we may continue to provide emergency support to people most impacted by COVID-19.

For an organization that thrives on personal connection, face-to-face service delivery, and group interaction, it was an adjustment for us to move our operations online. It wasn’t long, though, before we found that services could continue to be delivered, classes could still be interactive, and meetings – for better or worse – could still take place. Here’s a quick and lighthearted take on how IINE staff and clients have been making the  best of working from home.
