What is LHVC doing?
LHVC is developing supports and infrastructure in the following ways:
Established a 24/7 Helpline
Child care (limited free options & paid)
Curating valid and vetted information
Collaborating with other neighborhoods
Liaising with the City and Lane County Public Health
Seeking additional funds and resources
Database of volunteers
Database of neighbors in need
If the outbreak hits our neighborhood hard, the Executive Committee will call neighbors in need to check in on them and connect them to volunteers as needed. We will also help connect them with whatever resources that may be needed.
We are also searching for options that may support neighbors who need financial or material aid in terms of food, transportation, clothing, shelter, etc.
