Volunteer Opportunities/How to Help

  • Louisville Match Program - We are preparing for the potential of a community outbreak of COVID-19 in Louisville by identifying healthy adults who are under 60, whose risk factors are low and who are willing to be paired with an elder or someone with high risk factors in our community. Once a match is made you and your COVID-19 Match can coordinate the delivery of essential supplies, like food and prescriptions and also be someone who can regularly check in with those who are high-risk by phone or other electronic means.
