Donate Masks to Frontline Healthcare Workers through GetUsPPE.org
Get Us PPE is the largest national organization getting personal protective equipment (PPE such as masks, gloves, and isolation gowns) to frontline workers who need it most. As a nonprofit, they obtain PPE via donations and makers, then deliver it to under-resourced facilities at no cost to them. Fair and equitable distribution is vital to their mission.
Get Us PPE was founded by emergency physicians in late March 2020 in response to urgent PPE shortages. Within days, a team of 200+ volunteers from across the country came together to help. Their website has logged thousands of PPE requests from all 50 states, and they have delivered millions of units of PPE to nursing homes, hospitals, rural healthcare facilities, small clinics, homeless shelters, and indigenous communities.
Priority Access Diversion program
Los Angeles Centers for Alcohol and Drug Abuse (L.A. CADA) has served LA County for 50 years by providing substance use disorder (SUD) and behavioral health treatment to marginalized and historically-disadvantaged communities. Along with their outpatient, intensive outpatient, and residential programs, L.A. CADA offers recovery bridge housing, youth substance use prevention and treatment services, HIV testing, and a full continuum of care for individuals with SUD and co-occurring disorders.
L.A. CADA implements a Priority Access Diversion (P.A.D) program, which advocates for treatment versus incarceration model of care and exemplifies the agency’s commitment to health equity. The agency demonstrates a “Care First, Jail Last” approach to alleviate the decades old failed “war on drugs” and resulting societal and racial inequities. L.A. CADA operates within marginalized, underserved communities to reduce recidivism through residential and intensive outpatient treatment programs that serve as alternatives to incarceration. These efforts address issues such as housing, education, job training and family reunification as a method for treating individuals towards a path of recovery and success.
