COVID-19 Community Resources

Fort Worth residents are always eager to lend a helping hand during difficult times. It's no different during the current COVID-19 outbreak.

Fort Worth neighbors are encouraged to call 2-1-1, 24 hours a day, to be connected to a comprehensive list of community services. The Community Engagement Office has also compiled a list of groups willing to provide additional assistance during this time. Some of the groups are faith-based, while others are area agencies that are accustomed to helping others.
