COVID‑19 has impacted our city in many ways. Financial resources are available to help support our city’s businesses, nonprofit organizations and individuals through this difficult time.
Do you know someone affected by COVID-19, living in Sacramento, who can provide right to work documentation and is at least 18 years old? La Familia’s partnership with the California Mobility Center may be the chance for them to receive training in manufacturing and transportation.

La Familia, in partnership with Sacramento County, presents Housing for the Harvest, a service for farmworkers and food processing workers who tested positive or may have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19. This local service, as part of the statewide program of the same name, is to help workers isolate and quarantine to protect family and coworkers from the virus. Among the services provided are a free hotel room to self-isolate for up to 14 days to help slow the spread of COVID-19, as well as free meals, free transportation, access to healthcare and other financial resources for workers and their families. All information is confidential and will be kept safe, and workers will not be asked about immigration status.

National Diabetes Month
National Diabetes Month is an annual event each November to boost awareness about the risk factors, symptoms, and types of diabetes.
There are two main conditions:

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body can’t produce insulin, a hormone in the pancreas that breaks down carbohydrates into blood sugar or glucose, for energy. Insulin therapy helps the pancreas to function normally.

Many children suffer from Type 1 diabetes although it can affect people of any age or background.


Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the disease where the body is unable to process our internal insulin well enough to keep blood sugar at normal levels.
Day of the Dead-
Día de los Muertos
Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is a traditional Mexican holiday celebrated on November 1st – 2nd. On this day it is believed that the souls of the dead return to visit their living family members.

Many people celebrate this day by visiting the graves of deceased loved ones and setting up alters with their favorite foods, drink, and photos. Most families decorate their loved ones’ graves with ofrendas (offerings), which often include marigolds. It’s said that these specific flowers attract the souls of the dead to the offerings, and the bright petals and strong scent guides the souls from the cemetery to their family’s home.
Veterans Day
Veterans Day, observed annually on November 11, is a tribute to military veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. We celebrate and honor veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
We will be CLOSED on Wednesday, November 11th in observance of Veterans Day.
