What can I say?

I started writing this newsletter a dozen times over the month, thinking that I would offer advice on working at home or how to job search/hire in the middle of a pandemic, but honestly, all of those topics seem beside the point now. It is a scary time and for those who understood the underreported challenges of daily life for our communities before this, the stress can be overwhelming. Anyone suggesting that they know what to do right now is, at best, deluded.

Our communities need masks, ventilators, food, toilet paper, Zoom accounts, a living wage for essential workers, a safety net for those who work in less-essential fields, and political leadership. And personally, we might be craving human connection--or, if we're home with family, perhaps less connection sounds better. So those of us who are sheltering-in-place, let's continue to do that and support the folks who are in the front lines through donating cash (if we can), extending common courtesy, and wearing masks/washing our hands when we go out. 

Otherwise, we just have to find the bright spots in our days. Get reacquainted with your kitchen. Enjoy Netflix. Post the Instagram-filtered headshot in your business newsletter. Take a nap. Do what you can when you can do it, but otherwise let it be. 


Project and client updates

Despite pandemics, we've still been busy. Our online grantwriting course and fundraising toolkit will be launched at the end of the month (*knock on wood*). So if you're looking to expand your skillset and/or get your files into order, we'll have you covered.

We've still been doing a ton of mailings for Bernstein & Associates, although obviously a lot of the consultations will be done virtually these days. We joined Denver College Success Corporation mere days before the city was locked down. We are helping them with project management and setting up operations to make sure that tax dollars are being used efficiently. It's a strange time to be cataloging volunteer procedures for Casa de Paz, when their operations have changed so drastically thanks to COVID-19, but in some ways, it's an ideal time to assess what we're doing and why. We hosted an online grantwriting training for the Colorado Doula Project - their operations have also changed to keep everyone safe and we'll have to get a bit creative as we think about how we can continue to serve in our new circumstances.
