Abstract: AbstractThe COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected every part of the world in many different ways. When this is broken down further, it is apparent that communities that were struggling before the pandemic would be affected more so than others. As of 2019, Robeson County was considered the poorest county in North Carolina based on median household income (Fox8, 2021). Taking this into consideration, it is essential to focus on ways to support and assist Robeson County in this time of need. Populations that are significantly prevalent in this community are single-parent families with children, which make up nearly half of the community (Trading Economics, 2019). Thus, the purpose of this project is to determine “How has COVID-19 affected families with children in Robeson County and what interventions can be implemented to help these families?” This will be determined using the nursing process to assess, diagnose, plan, intervene, and evaluate the community (Savage, 2020). The results of this project show the need for vaccination and health promotion, and income and nutrition relief. Therefore, this project will involve a community event in which education and relief assistance interventions will be implemented face-to-face.
