March 19th, 2020, the State of California issued a stay at home order, requiring all residents to remain in their dwellings except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. Stockton Strong provides you with a single source for resources & ways to get involved in the COVID-19 response. Further, they collect real-time data from community members to ensure our community designs effective relief programs and recommends the right resources to support you.

Text COVID19 to 211211 (and respond with your zip code) to receive information about COVID-19 in our community.

To talk to a live person-trained specialist 24/7 who can connect you to everything from food resources to medical transportation, Stockton residents can dial 211 or 800-439-9997.


We at Stockton Scholars continue to remain committed to ensuring that all of our students are safe, healthy and connected during the Covid-19 pandemic. Stockton Scholars has established an Emergency Fund for the purposes of supporting our scholars attempting to get through this unprecedented and challenging time.

Please apply indicating what your specific need(s) are. We will process your request for support at the end of every month. Finally, we recognize this has been a difficult time for you and your loved ones and welcome you to contact us directly should you have any additional questions about the Emergency Fund or wish to learn about additional resources we have available.
