The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented job loss and disruption to the economy. Household workers are some of the most economically vulnerable workers, as they live paycheck to paycheck in many instances.

Professional fiduciaries are educationally qualified individuals who care for the financial and personal care needs of individuals who are unable to do so themselves, and who have no close family or friends who are able and/or willing to do so for them.
