The country’s social safety net provides critical assistance to vulnerable households that are experiencing poverty. However, identifying and connecting to the appropriate services can prove difficult due to a lack of information, the digital divide and other obstacles. What will it take to strengthen the social safety net in the Bay Area, as well as across the country, to ensure that no one slips through? Join us as representatives from both local government and nonprofits share the role that they play in connecting the right people with the right benefits, the challenges caused by COVID-19 and the solutions that are proving successful now.
