Congregation Neveh Shalom has received a grant to support Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 outreach and support initiatives within the Jewish communities of Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties. Neveh Shalom is one of more than 170 Community Based Organizations to receive an OHA grant to serve communities throughout the state.
Susan Greenberg is the project manager for the grant and manages both the education/community engagement and wraparound teams.
CNS COVID outreach and support services aim to connect individuals and families to the information and resources they need to stay safe, healthy and well-informed. The priority is to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Toward this goal, the team is collaborating with Jewish organizations and volunteers in the region to support public health efforts to curb the pandemic.
The social services and wraparound services team will work with those affected by COVID-19 to provide services and connections with existing benefit programs. For those with a positive COVID-19 test or confirmed exposure, the services team can directly provide resources and support for isolation/quarantine.
The outreach and communications team is conducting a survey and has launched a weekly e-newsletter.
What questions do you have about COVID-19? What are your biggest concerns? What kind of resources are you looking for? Please take a few minutes to complete the survey at https://tinyurl.com/CNSCovidSurvey.
The weekly newsletter will provide Oregon-specific updates, tips for navigating everyday life in a pandemic and links to news stories across a diverse range of publications that are informative and helpful. Subscribe here.
