COVID-19 EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE ENROLLMENT

Edna Martin Christian Center (EMCC) and Public Advocates in Community Re-Entry (PACE) take seriously the responsibility to help our neighbors, and even more so during this crisis. Both organizations have received C-CERF funds to continue and expand their work during this critical time. Together, we have developed a collective strategy and will be deploying it as part of the Martindale-Brightwood 7 Initiative (MB7).  The working title is the “MB Collective Impact Strategies”, and so far these initiatives are meant to address:
 
1. Financial assistance (utilities, rent, mortgage, connectivity, transportation)

2. Food/supply access (pantry and home delivery distribution support for vulnerable neighbors) 

3. Virtual connection and programming (youth and seniors) 

4. Virtual case management and Virtual Recovery Support Services and Referrals for those with criminal histories
 (crisis management, workforce development, substance use services, and mental health and recovery support)

5. Social enterprise investment for entrepreneurs assisting with crisis mitigation

6. Neighborhood updates via regular newsletters, sponsored by EMCC and the MB7 Community Voice Network

7. Agency, community partner assistance referrals
 
We have all seen how quickly the crisis is growing, and we are committed to evolving to meet new demands. Also, we anticipate that more Martindale-Brightwood ministries and community organizations will join us in this unified, collaborative effort. As we grow, we will be better able to fine tune delivery or service, avoid duplication, and help more people.
