A message from the CEO on COVID-19

The Paso del Norte Health Foundation is deeply committed to the health and safety of the residents of our region. We created the El Paso COVID-19 Information Hub to help individuals and families navigate COVID-19, including important health, education and economic resources for parents, veterans, employers and employees. The website is updated daily. Please make sure to share with colleagues, family and friends.

We are also pleased to share a link to the El Paso COVID-19 Response Fund established by the Paso del Norte Community Foundation in partnership with the United Way of El Paso to support nonprofit organizations serving the most vulnerable in our community - including the homeless and elderly populations.

The El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund was also established by a group of local service industry volunteers to provide a grant to Workforce Solutions Borderplex to support food and beverage workers who have been laid off or working significantly reduced hours due to a temporary closure as a result of the pandemic.
