The COVID-19 pandemic has created operational, financial and workforce challenges for social services and community development organizations that are facing increased demands for services. This has an effect on the issues that existed well before the pandemic including:

  • Funding without stable resources to support core operations, 
  • High turnover generated by low wages and benefits, and limited opportunities for career advancement, 
  • Recruitment and employee retention challenges increased by high levels of stress, burn out and lay-offs.
