This spreadsheet was created by Taylor Nawrocki (firstname.lastname@example.org) on 3/14/2020. On 3/17/2020 Taylor worked collaboratively with Advocate Volunteers and Staff at the Community Empowerment Fund (CEF) in Durham to adapt the resource bank based on comments from the community and officially updated the document on 3/19/2020.
This document has served as a tool for all Orange residents to access up-to-date information on community resources. Resources include a mixture of mutual aid and community response, non-profit and government support, and private sectors/corporate response. Inclusion of any resource on this list is not an endorsement of a service, but an effort to get folks all the possible information. As of January 2021 CEF has begun transferring resource information from this document into the OCConnect.info resource database. There you can search by topic or keyword for all kinds of resources, COVID related and non-COVID related alike.
The resources in this document were upkept by volunteer-power through CEF through December of 2020. Our team checked resource websites, social media, and called organizations directly to update this tool. We also requested direct feedback from the public through comments on this spreadsheet. We actively added and edited resources as we learned more informationand are grateful to everyone who contributed their know how and experience to this tool. In order to share information rapidly and support informal community response, this team did not thoroughly vet all resources before posting and updating, so please contact all sources directly if you are planning to make use of a resource you find here!
We worked with community partners to increase the langage and ADA accessibility of this document. Compass Center, OCRCC and independent volunters provided translation capacity and specific resources for our latinx neighbors througout this project. If you or someone you know needs support navigating this document, CEF's Chapel Hill office is open and answers our phones M-Th from 10am-3pm. You can reach us at 919-200-0233.
During the initial months of the pandemic, this document was meant to support all efforts that to all uf us in this community meet our needs and support our neighbors, especially marginalized folks most affected by COVID-19. While we are working with the institutional power of a non-profit, we know that liberation will not come through aid distributed by opressive systems/institutions. We must look out for each other and everyone is highly encouraged to connect with local mutal aid efforts to share community resources and build power to organize for change. If there are ways that CEF can better support existing community care and mutual aid efforts, please feel free to let us know by contacting email@example.com.
