These are indeed challenging times and we can easily lose faith as our normal safeguards appear to be falling away. I want you to know that many organizations are working on your behalf to make sure that you get through this. We don’t have a lot of control over what is going on around us. A quote I have found helpful for me when dealing with difficult circumstances I can't control is “If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.” I have the distinct feeling we will be changing the way we think about a lot of things as the impact of COVID 19 subsides.
As you face the effects of this pandemic on your household, be open to sharing your needs. Don’t go at it along. Use the resources provided below to help relieve the stress and isolation this virus has caused. If you live in the near west contact your community center for direct services available.
Hang in there. We will get through this, together.
