The people of Chelsea, Massachusetts need your help urgently.
The One Chelsea Fund, established with the United Way by the City of Chelsea and community partners (the Chelsea Collaborative, GreenRoots, and the Neighborhood Developers), provides direct assistance to local families in dire need because of the pandemic.
Chelsea is home to some of the most vulnerable groups in the Boston region: newly-arrived immigrants, undocumented families, non-English speakers, and low-income workers and families with children. As a frontline community, Chelsea residents already experience greater public health challenges. The economic, social, and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic were immediate and dire for the many in Chelsea who live one paycheck away from serious financial hardship. COVID-19 has magnified the ongoing struggles of our community: unstable and unaffordable housing, food insecurity, low wages, lack of English proficiency, and high rates of uninsured.
Our community partners are coordinating the thoughtful distribution of your donations with 100% going to Chelsea families.
