This spreadsheet was created by Taylor Nawrocki (email@example.com) 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.
During this time of crisis, this document is meant to support all efforts that help us 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
That being said, we are including all resources on this document that may be helpful in meet our needs- a mixture of mutal 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.
These resources are being upkept by volunteer-power through CEF for the forseeable future based on direct input and suggestions from folks who comment here. In order to share information rapidly and support informal community response, this team is not thoroughly vetting resources before posting and updating, so please contact all sources directly! We will respond as promptly as possible to edits and new resources.
We want to increase the langage and ADA accessibility of this document. If anyone has translation capacity or specific resources for our latinx neighbors, please reach out to email@example.com. If you or someone you know needs support navigating this document, we will be staffing a phone line daily from 9:30-5:30 starting on Tuesday, March 24 at 9:30 am. Call in for support at 919-797-9233.
