Get Involved in the COVID-19 Task Force’s Caretaker Project!
FYLPRO is looking for individuals who want to focus their talents to help the Filipino American community navigate the COVID-19 health crisis.
The Caretaker project is launching a web help desk, “Tayo” designed for seniors, unemployed individuals, and front line workers with information to make decisions to safeguard their health and well being during the pandemic. Firmly believing that we are the agents of change, and the custodians of our own community, FYLPRO and the Caretaker project is mobilizing experts, content creators, and service providers in the areas of medicine and medical research, mental health, government assistance and response, transportation, and social services to provide credible, timely, and community-specific information.
Tayo will launch a pilot which will run from October 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020, and will focus on the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. Through the pilot, we aim to estimate the need for such information for the Filipino American Community, identify strategies to make such information more accessible, and to assess the further needs of the target population relative to the COVID-19 pandemic. Upon completion of the pilot, we plan to seek funds to continue and improve upon the project for roll out in other parts of the country.
Subject Matter Experts: FYLPRO alumni who have expertise in the following areas: medical, mental health, business, immigration, housing, transportation.
