Minnesota Black Community COVID-19 Hotline

A new resource called The Minnesota Black Community COVID-19 Hotline is now available to help Minnesota’s African American community successfully navigate supportive resources and services needed to cope with the Health & Wellness, Economic Development, Education and Family & Culture impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Call the Hotline: 612-254-1145

This hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide callers with important info about virus testing sites and connects them to resources that support food security, physical and mental health, employment, housing, childcare, legal rights and other COVID-19 related challenges.

The hotline will also help callers seeking information and/or resources to support COVID-19 mitigation efforts, such as reusable cloth masks, hand sanitizer, and cleaning supplies,

The African American Leadership Forum (AALF) and the Phyllis Wheatley Community Center (PWCC) have partnered with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and other partners to ensure that all other needs and resource gaps in the Black community stemming from the pandemic are addressed.
