Resurrection Catholic School—a kindergarten through 8th grade educational ministry serving a predominantly low- income base in the Los Angeles area since 1950—was faced with tough decisions as the COVID-19 pandemic hit . All of Resurrection School’s families receive parish subsidies and 85% qualify for free and reduced lunch. With Catholic schools and churches halting their fundraising, school leadership was uncertain on how to move forward. This was an especially hard hit for a school that prides itself on its very high-touch learning environment. With the shutdown of in-person education Resurrection administrators were scrambling for enough adequate resources to be able to continue its mission.
Thankfully, with the help of University of Southern California Credit Union (USCC), the school received relief funds that they were able to put toward ensuring enough staff was in place to support the shift to online learning.
