The COVID-19 outbreak has caused considerable hardship within our community, particularly touching vulnerable populations such as our seniors, homeless youth, Baltimore City school students and families, and people living with disabilities.

As the virus continues to spread, Johns Hopkins is mobilizing and harnessing our expertise, capabilities, and resources to provide support and relief to those in need in our community. We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and offers for help that we have received from countless members of the Hopkins family and extended community.

Financial resources, in-kind support, or volunteer hours are all are appreciated—please fill out a brief survey to let us know how you can help and we will respond as quickly as possible. If you are in need of assistance, please fill out this brief form and we will follow up.
