2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19 for short) is a virus (bug) that is causing a serious breathing illness. The virus is spreading from person-to-person and the number of cases detected in the United States and many other countries is growing. Reported cases have ranged from mild illness (like a common cold) to severe pneumonia that requires hospitalization. So far, deaths have been reported mainly in older adults who had other health conditions. It's important to remember to wash your hands, avoid touching your face, and stay away from people if you think you are sick or may have been in contact with someone who is sick.

World Relief North Texas is doing everything we can to actively serve our vulnerable neighbors in the community while we are under quarantine. We are continuing to provide limited vital resources such as emergency food provisions, rent assistance, and legal services. Presently, we are brainstorming ways to meet the needs of the exceptionally vulnerable in our community such as the elderly and single-parent households without putting anyone at risk. Additionally, we are hoping and praying for the days that will come after the COVID-19 pandemic, because there will be days to come. They will come with many in our community grappling for employment opportunity, financial stability, and hope. And we want to be there, standing alongside our neighbors when those days come. We want to be there to provide a ride to a job interview and the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Join us today by clicking here.
