We've made it through some difficult days (that have felt like the longest days ever) in April. Staff have tried our best to keep up our work and outreach despite being at home.
In the past month, we've worked on flyering to get our contact information out for individuals who may not have access to technology. This has resulted in phone calls and emails from neighbors who need resources and recommendations, and we've been able to help them. We continue to share loads of information on our Facebook page and other social media, and have created a page on our website with a list of resources.
Our Youth Organizers are a small group of middle and high school students who have continued to work with Shaquonna to promote safe and healthy practices right now. They've been creating some wonderful and relevant artwork.
If you have questions or would like to talk, please leave a message at our office 651/578-7600 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Shaquonna or I will get back to you!
New Resource Page
We now have a resource page on our website with information about food, housing and more. Each day, we also share resources and information on our Facebook and other social media pages. Please call 651/578-7600 or email if you are looking for something specific.
