Crown Heights Mutual Aid

COVID-19 has hit all of us hard but with the support of the whole Crown Heights community, we can keep each other safe, fed, and housed.

Who are we?

Crown Heights Mutual Aid is a network of neighbors supporting one another through this pandemic and the crises we face from climate change, state violence, and inequality. We all have something to offer and we all have something we need.

Need help?

At this time, we are only delivering to the area outlined below, due to volunteer capacity. This area is between Atlantic Avenue and Empire Boulevard, from Washington Avenue on the west to East New York Avenue and Howard Avenue on the east.

Crown Heights Mutual Aid can connect you with delivery and drop-off of items like groceries & supplies, child and elder care resources, over the counter medication and other essential items.

Our volunteers will facilitate a no-contact delivery and drop-off to your home. Let us know your situation and what you need, whether you can afford it or not. When you’re back on your feet and can offer to help others, we’ll connect you to someone else in need as well.

We will do our best to help and keep in contact with you through COVID-19 and even after. Our goal is to create a strong bond within our neighborhoods so we can empower each other and thrive.
