COVID-19 Response

acacia essential workers in ppe

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted low-income communities of color, who have suffered higher rates of infection and mortality. The current public health and economic crisis has also exacerbated the many challenges these communities already face on a daily basis as a result of poverty, structural inequality, and systemic racism.

Throughout these troubling times, we have continued to provide uninterrupted access to critical services and resources to ensure that those most at risk are able to overcome the challenges of mental health and addiction disorders, chronic health conditions, poverty, housing insecurity and homelessness, food inequality, economic hardship and unemployment, educational barriers, cultural alienation, among others.

ATTENTION: We are now offering the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible individuals at our designated Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). For more information, visit: acacianetwork.org/covidvaccine

Puerto Rico By the Numbers

In 2020, Acacia Network continued to solidify our presence in Puerto Rico through our earthquake relief efforts, which included visits to underserved communities to carry out informational workshops, wellness initiatives, and music & artistic interventions, and to provide critical supplies & equipment. Our efforts later pivoted to COVID-19 relief, as the pandemic further exacerbated health and economic disparities across the Island.
