About Building Maroonage: Direct Support
Direct support is long-term, sustained care for people in crisis. We are reimagining the traditional tools of direct giving and philanthropy to create a community-sustained model that’s more than just a transaction. (This is why we do not call it direct giving.)
Direct support empowers people and communities to connect and share resources without government entities and nonprofit organizations. Direct support meets the needs of communities vulnerable under the Trump administration, proactively ensuring families have what they need to prepare for crises. Direct support is most especially relevant during the hurricane season. (It was before, during, and after Hurricane Irma when the strategies in this toolkit were tested.)
We focuses on hurricane support in the United States (including Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands) and how to directly support communities impacted by the 2018 hurricane season. Through social media; online tools like Amazon registries, chat apps, and mobile cash-sharing apps, we can radically build Maroonage. Support includes but is not limited to: funding, supplies, and skill-sharing and is the short-term and long-term.
