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.
As a result of the economic shutdown, the Federal Government has provided small business owners economic relief through programs like the Payment Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program. However, the existential question looms: "How do I stabilize my company to prevent collapse when these relief programs are depleted?" David Oyadomari of newly formed Ekklesia Capital is offering a 4-week Zoom-delivered program to provide Hawaiʻi's small business owners the technical tools and social support system to stabilize their business during the COVID-19 crisis and develop a foundation for recovery and resilience. During this pilot, David is building the ability to scale this program to over half of Hawaiʻi's small business market.
