Wishing all neighbors a safe and happy winter season

During the rest of 2021 and into the New Year we wish you joy and warmth and encourage you to join us in extending empathy and care to your neighbors and community members after a difficult second year of the pandemic.

For the freezing and snowy weather we’re having this week, our state representative, Rob Nosse, has put together a helpful list of cold weather resources. If you are able and available, also check out the volunteer opportunities to help staff warming centers and more.

While many of us may be celebrating at this time of year, we also know that the holiday season isn’t always celebratory for everyone. If you need mental health support, to talk with someone, or food or social services access, we’ve compiled a few links for you:

  • Lines for Life Racial Equity Line: 503-575-3764. Support by people who have lived experience of racism, weekdays 10am to 7pm
  • Call to Safety: 503-235-5333. Trauma informed support for domestic and sexual abuse survivors, 24/7
  • The Trevor Project: 1-866-488-7386. Support for queer youth, 24/7 via phone, text, or chat
  • National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255. Support for people considering suicide in English and Español, 24/7 – you matter, please call if you are contemplating suicide. Also available for those who have a hearing disability. Chat option available.

Please check out Street Root’s Rose City Resource for a comprehensive list of supportive services.

We look forward to continuing collaborating with all of our Brooklyn neighbors in 2022 and beyond, and we hope for community health and abundance for everyone. Happy New Year, Feliz Año Nuevo!
