Covid-19: A Message From Ambassador Tony Hall
It’s OK to ask for Help!
We’ve never been here before. All of a sudden, we are at the highest unemployment rate most of us have ever seen, businesses have closed and we face a time of economic uncertainly.
If you are one of the tens of thousands of Daytonians hit by the economic downturn, I have a simple message for you:
It’s ok to ask for emergency help.
Contact the food bank (937 949 4096) or stop by a local food pantry. Apply for SNAP (formerly food stamps) and unemployment at Montgomery County Job and Family Services If you need to talk, call the Warmline at 937 538 7777. Ask at your place of worship.
If you aren’t sure where to go, call United Way of Greater Dayton Area's Helplink 211, open 24/7. And you can always check our resource page
In time, Dayton will recover and you’ll get back on your feet. Right now, take care of yourself, help out when you can and remember that we’re all in this together. Stay safe and healthy, we need you!
