Nonprofit launches new online COVID-19 local resource hub for King County

Hub collects links for more than 300 local resources for people affected by virus.

Health equity nonprofit HealthierHere recently announced the launch of a new online hub that collects links for more than 300 local resources for people affected by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

The site — healthierhere.org/covid — is updated daily. Resources are organized by audience and topic, with separate sections for organizations and consumers.

According to HealthierHere, the hub focuses on King County specifically. The online hub was launched after the organization had received partner feedback that it was challenging to sort through the resources and information available to the public in light of the pandemic.

“We wanted to create a centralized location where individuals and organizations could quickly find and connect with the critical resources they need,” said HealthierHere executive director Susan McLaughlin in a press release.

The site was published after nonprofit staffers surveyed “thousands of web pages to identify useful content.”

“The information our partners needed to be able to adapt and serve their patients and clients was spread across so many different sources,” McLaughlin said.

The hub mostly encompasses links available in multiple languages. It also prioritizes resources serving communities that have been most dramatically impacted by COVID-19, according to the organization.

To ensure that the hub is up to date, HealthierHere also takes submissions for new additions at healthierhere.org/covid/share.
