Resources available to assist residents and businesses

The city of Fort Worth has compiled a list of resources to assist residents and businesses during the CORVID-19 health emergency, the city said in a news release.

Residents are encouraged to call 2-1-1, 24 hours a day, to be connected to a comprehensive list of community services. The city’s Community Engagement Office has also compiled a list of groups willing to provide additional assistance during this time. Some of the groups are faith-based, while others are area agencies that are accustomed to helping others.

Resources include information on emergency meals, food pantries, rent / utility assistance, medical and prescription assistance, transportation and childcare.
