The COVID-19 crisis is having a direct impact on families with young children and organizations and agencies that support them. Teams and partners within the Early Childhood Action Strategy (ECAS) network have shifted priorities to focus on four areas during the next few months: 1) Family Violence Prevention, 2) Prenatal Access, 3) Child Care Support, and 4) Weekly Resource Updates. Teams have designed strategies and are raising funds to support these efforts.
Since May 2020, Ekklesia Capital has worked with over 120 local businesses across over 20 industries through the "Rebuild Your Business" and "Pivot Your Business" programs. Work included a partnership with Hawaiian Community Assets & Hawaiian Community Lending to provide technical assistance and grants to business owners statewide during the pandemic.
