Providing For Our Community During The COVID-19 Crisis

We are committed to doing our part to promote public health by postponing, interrupting or canceling in-person activities while staying true to our mission of finding healthy, creative ways for people to contribute to community good. Across our 22 programs, we have suspended all non-essential services to be able to focus on the critical needs of our community members, clients, and fellow nonprofits. View the list of services we are maintaining for volunteers, vulnerable populations, and fellow non-profits. VIEW OUR SERVICES

Volunteer to help our community prepare for natural disasters and emergencies! We are in need of volunteers who can call seniors and review information. This project is done from your home. Materials are provided as well as a short script and frequently asked questions to guide people through the process of making a personal, emergency preparedness plan.

Emergency Response Volunteers Needed

We have adapted our services to meet the immediate critical needs of some of the most vulnerable in our community and  are now providing food distribution, grocery shopping support, recruiting volunteers to staff our county emergency shelters, and enlisting volunteers to sew masks for county operations. Sign up via our COVID-19 Volunteer Registry to be matched with a current community need.

Keep The Lights On Santa Cruz County Premiere

Thanks for watching with us!

Thank you for joining us on #GivingTuesdayNow for the premiere of Keep the Lights On Santa Cruz County, an online gathering designed to uplift and inspire our community to action while sheltering in place. Local leaders, athletes, and musicians launched us into the Human Race Campaign homestretch with an hour of entertainment and calls to action.  We enjoyed stories, baking, music, celebrity interviews, and learned about simple acts of kindness.
