Social Safety Net Organizations Serving Vulnerable Populations


This Working Group will examine how organizations that routinely serve socially vulnerable populations are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, it seeks to understand their common challenges, capacity to mobilize under rapidly-changing conditions, innovations to address emergent issues, the role that inter-organizational networks play in supporting the response effort, and how researchers can best support them.
