Community Resilience Toolkits
posted 7 months ago by lanecoad from Lane COAD
Lane County has developed a series of toolkits to provide a variety of resources designed to aid community healing in response to COVID-19 and the wildfires. These tools will enhance resilience and promote recovery from stress caused by the pandemic and its economic consequences. The Toolkits are interactive, addresses specific populations and topics, and include materials to meet the needs of people and organizations during this challenging time.
Some important considerations:
- Every person is an individual and will have their own reactions to world events.
- People in poverty are often most strongly affected by difficult events due to fewer available resources.
- Rural communities have different needs and responses than urban communities.
- Underrepresented populations may be more severely impacted by economic stress due to systemic disparities, racism and oppression.
