A volunteer group of Los Alamos County residents called All Together Los Alamos is stepping up to provide information on resources and services to individuals and families who are housebound during the COVID-19 emergency. This group will supplement services already being provided by local senior centers and other non-profits.
All Together Los Alamos hopes to promote and enhance existing neighbor-to-neighbor relationships and networks as well as recently established social media sites to maximize communication within the community as the expected surge in needs emerges. This will include getting the most current information on resources from the County, non-profits and local businesses out to people who are homebound.
All Together Los Alamos plans will try to assist homebound residents with:
- simple “well-check” phone calls;
- directing people to available resources;
- providing over-the-phone support for setting up communication methods such as video- chatting;
- Picking up prescriptions or groceries and delivering them to homes.
The group will also provide information to local online and print newspapers, local social media and KRSN radio.
Applications for assistance are not currently being accepted but further information will be released early next week.
