The Home Front supports frontline healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our mandate is to provide effective and strategic ways to help for people who want to make a difference for the frontlines of COVID-19. We research the greatest upcoming needs on the frontlines of COVID-19, talk to people on the ground, collect donations, and donate what we collect to the places that need it most. We make it easy for people who want to give back to know that their money is making a difference. We are a volunteer organization affiliated with registered charity The Upside Foundation.
Our Guiding Principles
When COVID-19 first arrived and we read in horror about the situations in Italy and New York, we were devastated to think of our frontline healthcare workers not having the basic support and equipment they needed. We launched the Home Front to help meet the needs of the frontline workers who are facing COVID-19 head-on. In our mission to meet this community’s most pressing needs, we started our efforts with sourcing PPE, then shifted to support long term care homes and shelters experiencing outbreaks as the situation evolved.
Over the last 6 months, though there have been ebbs and flows, health care professionals are exhausted, overworked, under-resourced, and ill equipped to handle this second wave. In our continued efforts to support these invaluable hard working members of society, we’re working on new and innovative ways to support those fighting on the front lines.
We’re looking at:
1) supporting immediate needs
2) understanding the systemic changes that need to happen in order to better support the sector going forward.
Who We Are
A collective of professionals and entrepreneurs taking action to support frontline workers.
Thank you so much to all those who were instrumental in launching The Home Front
