COVID-19 Response

During this COVID-19 crisis, MI remains committed to accompanying immigrants in their time of need. MI’s COVID-19 response services to day laborers and immigrant families include but are not limited to: 

  • Distribution of free PPEs (masks and gloves) as needed
  • Weekly food distribution at its Berkeley and Richmond locations
  • Advocacy and application support for relief, rental and financial assistance
  • Promotion and sharing of COVID-19 information, updates and resources
  • Direct service and mental health support and referrals 

In addition, MI continues to offer its regular wrap-around services (job placement assistance, wage theft support, legal, immigration and health resources and referrals) over the phone and virtually. Help us continue to offer these services by:

  • Donating directly to our organization. Every dollar counts and helps to make a difference in the life of many. 
  • Donating face masks. Reusable masks preferred.  Please call (510) 847-1479 for drop off information. 
  • Donating beans, rice, canned tuna, pasta/pasta sauce or other food essentials.  Please call (510) 847-1479 for drop off information.
