Many Angelenos are facing difficulties getting their basic needs met as a result of the rapid changes brought about by the coronavirus.

To help, we’ve compiled a list of places that are offering financial assistance, food for adults and kids, and more. We'll be updating it regularly.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is encouraging people whose jobs have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak to apply for unemployment or disability. And the federal government recently passed a bill requiring employers to pay sick leave and family leave. Read our guide on that here.

    For additional information, check out these maps we put together of school sites and community centers offering free meals for kids for pick-up.

    You can also review this crowd-sourced list of resources in Los Angeles (note: this is an external list that we have not vetted).

    Please reach out if you have a question, or know of a resource that's not on our list.
