Share Your Perspective
The spread of COVID-19 has led to uncertain times. But we have the power to help stop the spread, care for our family and friends, and to stay connected to our community. Neighbors can share stories, tips and inspiration for thriving during this challenging time at Speak Up Arvada #WeCanDoThis. We invite you to inspire other Arvada residents by sharing your reflections and plan for recovery at Speak Up Arvada.
Strengthen Your Neighborhood
Strong social connections are so important to our ability to recover as a community.
- Create a resilient neighborhood. Do you have your neighbors’ contact information so you can start a phone tree, or group message for regular check ins to make sure everyone has what they need? Use our Talent Bank tool to collect that info.
- Once you have everyone's contact information, determine what the needs are. Offer to run errands or pick up groceries or mow the lawn for someone who is elderly or immunocompromised. Schedule regular phone calls with someone who is simply paralyzed by anxiety.
Creative Neighboring Our challenge to you - how will you stay connected to your neighbors/nurture the relationships between neighbors while being physically distant? Think creatively. Learn more about ways to neighbor during COVID-19.
