Adjustments to Service Delivery in Light of COVID-19

We are closely monitoring the evolving developments of COVID-19. We are making adjustments to our service delivery to ensure the health of our community.

We are closely monitoring the evolving developments of COVID-19 and looking to follow advice given by health care professionals and King County officials. Our thoughts are with the individuals and families impacted at this time. Our top priority is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, family members, clients, and community.

We are making adjustments to our service delivery to ensure the health of our community and for the practical consideration that our clients and volunteers may not be able to come, or feel comfortable coming, to our events as they would under normal circumstances.

For the month of March 2020, we are making the following changes to our programs.

Nonprofit and Microenterprise Legal, Fundraising, or Grant Writing Clinics

We will be conducting all of our clinic appointments by phone. If you are scheduled for any of the following clinics, our staff will contact you regarding next steps.

If you are scheduled for one of these clinics and have not heard from our staff before the date of the clinic, please contact us by email at contact@communities-rise.org.

Upcoming Trainings

March 26, 2020 – Understanding the 501(c)(3) Application Process Training and Legal Clinic

This training will be presented as a webinar. Our staff will be in touch with registered attendees to provide additional information. The Legal Clinic appointments will be conducted by phone. If you have questions about the March 26, 2020 training or clinic please contact sarah@communities-rise.org.

VOICES 2020 – Communities Rise Celebration & Fundraiser

We have decided to postpone VOICES, our fundraiser previously scheduled for March 19, until it is determined that we can safely gather together. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and be in touch with updates as we are able. If you purchased tickets for this event, we will provide additional information about how to proceed. Please be assured that all purchased tickets will be valid for the rescheduled event. If you have any questions, contact aimie@communities-rise.org.

Additional Resources

We want you to stay safe and healthy. For specific recommendations on practices to stay safe see the CDC guidelines. We are also concerned about the discrimination and harassment that is impacting communities due to misinformation and stigma. For more resources on what you can do to address this form of discrimination see the King County resource page. Please stay informed and do not spread misinformation or discriminate against anyone because of their perceived country of origin.

We wish you safety, wellness and patience in this challenging time and will be in touch with any additional updates.

Please take care of yourselves and each other. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at contact@communities-rise.org.
