Helpin Resource Roundup 3/27/20

March 27, 2020

With the coronavirus disrupting life as many Americans know it, Earnin has launched a new Facebook group called Helpin with the aim to create a catalog of useful information. It lists resources related to finances, job loss, access to nutrition, shelter, renter or homeowner services, elder care, and child services, among other categories. People have been sharing links in the Helpin group, so we’re rounding them up and listing them on the blog. We hope our community finds these resources helpful.
