We have made more than 4,900 calls and spoken to more than 1,000 people, but there are thousands more that we need to reach. This will be perhaps the easiest and most rewarding phone bank you'll ever do - checking in with our senior citizens to make sure they are safe and have the supplies they need during this coronavirus pandemic. We will provide training documents, a list of resources, FAQs, and more.
 
Sign up today. We will be hosting Zoom socials and virtual phone banks on Wednesdays and Fridays, from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM.

Mental Health Resources

If you or a loved one are struggling with stress related to the COVID-19 pandemic and need emotional support, text TALK to 552020 for English or HABLAR for Spanish.

This service is free and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. People seeking assistance will remain anonymous and will provide only their first name and zip code, which enables the service to link you to a counselor in your area who is knowledgeable about available local resources.
