Local agencies improve connections to resources

Here and across the country, the coronavirus pandemic has hit African American and Latino communities especially hard. For people of color already caring for loved ones who are frail and elderly or dealing with other illnesses such as dementia and Alzheimer's disease, the pandemic has added one more challenge to daily life.
