Sally's CAHOOTS Fundraiser 2021
Help Strengthen CAHOOTS Services
the weather gets colder and wetter, I’m especially appreciating having a warm,
safe, comfortable place to live. During the roughest stretches in my life when I’ve been in pain or laid out by fatigue, I realize how blessed
I am to have a cozy home, a caring and reliable support system, and the means
to meet my needs. I think about people in our community who don’t have
even a dry place to sleep or enough to eat or the support it takes to hang in
there during hard times. That’s why I want to do all I can to help
CAHOOTS do its amazing work. If someone needs shelter CAHOOTS hooks them up
with a tent and food and connects them with other White Bird programs to get them the
support they need.
How much sweeter and more humane to have a gentle CAHOOTS worker show up to offer help than to wind up in a hostile confrontation with police.
Please join me in contributing much needed funds for this awesome service again this year.
Sally is particularly interested in supporting CAHOOTS efforts in providing shelter to unhoused community members, and offering sleeping bags, tents, tarps, easy snacks, socks and other essential supplies and services for folks in crisis during these colder months.
She would like her friends and family to know more about the CAHOOTS Team at White Bird Clinic, and their approach to providing compassionate care to our community. CAHOOTS (Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets) provides mobile crisis intervention 24/7 in the Eugene-Springfield Metro area. CAHOOTS workers are a mobile crisis intervention team, designed as an alternative to police response for non-violent crises. This service contributes to a much-needed safety net for the community and has been elevated as a national model.
