Providing For Our Community During This Challenging Time
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.

Recruiting COVID-19 Emergency Response Volunteers
Are you looking for ways to help during this public health emergency? We are working with community partners to identify where volunteers can help meet community needs in the coming weeks. We invite you to view our list of current needs. We will continue to update this list as new needs arise.
Mental Health Support Services & Food Distribution
Everyday staff and volunteers from our program Community Connection dedicate themselves to helping adults lead healthier and more productive lives by overcoming mental health and chemical dependency challenges. While the shelter in place mandate is in order we will rely on telecommunication to support our mental health participants. We will also continue to provide services for those in need of food, access to healthcare, or having a psychiatric emergency.
Support for Vulnerable Seniors
We are focused on finding safe ways to continue much needed services for local seniors. We are currently providing priority rides for seniors to essential medical appointments through our Transportation Program and we have launched the Grocery Shopper Program to shop for seniors sheltering in place, with food & medications the top priority.
Special Resources for Nonprofits & Community Partners
As we face this public health emergency we are preparing to face it together. Our mission calls us to partner with our fellow nonprofit leaders, to ensure they have the resources they need. We are prepared to help with emergency volunteer recruitment, online fundraising, and free online training.
