Neighbors Helping Neighbors

We may be isolated, but we don’t have to be alone. Across the country, people are informally organizing new online mutual aid groups to stay connected, share ideas, and help those most affected by the Coronavirus. Whether you want to start a group, find a group, or get assistance yourself, our directory can help you connect with people in your community.

Mutual aid is a rapidly growing movement. The tools and guidance shared here have been collected from a variety of sources. We will continue to update them as necessary.

What is a Mutual Aid Group?

Mutual aid groups are informal groups of volunteers that band together to find effective ways to support those people most in need who live in their local community. Mutual aid can include picking up groceries, providing financial assistance, or lending emotional support to your neighbors.
