    Asking for Help

    The needs are piling up, the hurt is weighing us down, and yet we somehow have to keep going. This pandemic is causing these feelings yes, but it sometimes too is what every day struggles of life look like. It’s wondering how to put food on our tables, making sure we have access to medical care when we can’t get insurance, the need for childcare so we can go to our two jobs, finding a place for our parents so they are cared for and have a community of friends as they age. It’s all of these things and more.

    Celebrating Volunteerism – Now and in the Future

    April is National Volunteer Month and right now, many of us are trying to figure out what that looks like. How do we celebrate when we are sheltering in place? There are still many opportunities to volunteer – by sowing masks, by delivering commodities to homeless shelters and area nonprofits, by writing notes to homebound seniors and more. You can see current volunteer opportunities here. For when we have more flexibility with our movement and can volunteer more in person again though, we thought we would share some insights. Happy volunteering!

    Partner Spotlight: Healthy Communication and Staying Safe

    For months, our state and cities have been under orders to stay at home as best we can to ensure the safety and health of ourselves and others. Many of us, it may be inconvenient but nothing more than a frustration. For others, this means being trapped in an unsafe place with an abuser. Hear from one of our partner agencies, Project Safe, about the work they do for those seeking safe shelter from domestic violence.
