“We are all in this together” became a uniting motto for our communities during these challenging times. In an effort to keep New Yorkers safe, IntegrateNYC teamed up with #NYCEDU to create a database of helpful online resources. Their latest project helps communities and families stay informed and involved during the COVID-19 quarantine. This database provides access to free educational platforms, mental health support sites, housing and financial advice, and much more information where you can filter by type, topic, and location criteria based on resources available on national and state level. Check out these quick links to some great free services and online support platforms for families.
