Keeping Our Communities Safe & Healthy During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Heluna Health’s Response

Heluna Health’s program staff are on the front lines responding to COVID-19 (the illness caused by the novel coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2). We are working closely with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the California Department of Public Health and many other local jurisdictions supporting a comprehensive response to this global pandemic. We are focused on protecting our most vulnerable populations, as well as those who serve them.

Vaccine distribution
Heluna Health is providing staffing, procurement, contracting and other key infrastructure support to stand up immediate and widespread vaccination.
Frontline responders
Heluna Health’s program staff are an integral part of ‘incident command structures’.
Surge hiring of clinical and public health staff
We are helping clinical and public health entities respond as rapidly as possible by surge hiring MDs, RNS, EMTs, RTs, epidemiologists, microbiologists, community health workers, and supply chain staff.
Case investigation and contact tracing
Heluna Health is standing up and training cohorts of case investigators and contact tracers in partnership with local health and state health departments, when needed.
Supporting unhoused populations
Our outreach teams are working to help transition persons experiencing homelessness into ‘shelter-in-place’ & ‘isolation/quarantine’ locations (such as hotels and RVs). We are also providing additional education and support, as needed.
Distributing PPE
Generous donors to our COVID-19 Response Fund have allowed us to provide much needed personal protective equipment to frontline clinical and community workers in counties with high caseloads.
Expansion of COVID-19 testing
We are partnering with local health jurisdictions to support expanded testing, particularly in high risk and congregate settings.
We are supporting NIH-funded COVID-19 vaccine trials and investigating the impact of COVID-19 on participants of the USDA WIC program.
Core administrative support/fiscal sponsorship
We are working with the CDC, as well as state and local health departments to efficiently deploy funds that directly support the COVID-19 response.
Dedicated support to meet basic needs
We are providing food and other basic necessities to low-income families and at-risk youth who have been so deeply impacted by the economic dislocation caused by the pandemic.
