El Paso is #ACityWithStrength

El Paso is #ACityWithStrength because our community has come together to assist families who are at risk of losing their homes due to the hardships caused by COVID-19. Through a partnership with the City of El Paso and El Paso County, Paso del Norte Community Foundation manages the EP Rent Help program, providing millions of dollars to more than 3,000 tenants and landlords to help cover past due and future rent. #AAC2021 #IAmElPaso National Civic League All-America City Awards

Raising awareness during National Foster Care Month

May is #NationalFosterCareMonth and Workforce Solutions Borderplex ​has launched a month-long youth conference series to celebrate Foster Care and Alumni Awareness. The “Lunch and Learn” sessions are offered on Thursdays throughout the month of May and offer mentoring, coaching, and employment opportunities.

Through the Loaves and Fishes Fund, a fund created through the Paso del Norte Community Foundation by an anonymous donor, Workforce Solutions Borderplex has received grant money to support its work with foster youth and young adults who are aging out of foster care, putting them at risk for poverty and homelessness.

Thank you to Paso Del Norte for not only fortifying my love for helping my community but the tools to do it. Volunteering through N.E.T.W.O.R.K (North East El Paso Working to Optimize Resources and Knowledge) I learned about planning. Writing requests and proposals, budgeting and collaborative working. I was 19 best couple of years. Many memories made. I am now in San Diego using what i have learned.
Friends! While most of us are required to isolate and stay at home, some of our friends and neighbors are doing important work taking care of those in need. Our caregivers, first responders and medical professionals need our help to stay safe and protected! Please consider donating to the PdNCF's new fund for medical supplies. https://pdnfoundation.org/give-to-a-fund/ep-medical-equipment-fund A number of fine folks in our community are already finding creative ways to design, 3D print, sew, fabricate, and produce much needed protection equipment for those working with the sick and those most at risk from the virus. These funds will help procure much-needed equipment and supplies for printing/making masks, face shields, ventilator parts, etc. Let's make sure we stay ahead of the demand and protect our community as best we can. Give a little, give a lot. Thanks!
Great message!
Please help the families of the victims of the El Paso mass shooting of August 3, 2019, by making a small donation.
Thank you Helen of Troy for your contribution.
