We are thinking of y’all and miss seeing everyone around The Center and at our events! If you haven’t heard, we are operating remotely during our normal business hours and working on some digital programs that we are excited to share with you shortly. In the meantime, we have compiled some COVID-19 related resources into a Google Drive folder that we wanted to share with you all. The majority of documents in this folder were created by various Mutual Aid efforts and organizers to help navigate information and resources about COVID-19. While we did not create all of these documents ourselves, we thought that gathering them together might be helpful for our community. You will see that the resources range from local to national. We included state-wide and national resources for you to share with your friends, family, and chosen families who aren’t here with us in San Antonio, but also because some of them are useful no matter where you live.
It’s important to note, especially in times of emergency, that organizations may have different operating procedures or eligibility requirements for accessing their services so it is best to call ahead if you can. If you are unsure of what resources might be best for you, 211 is available to provide zip code specific resources. You can dial 2-1-1 on your phone or visit them at 211.org. Additionally, the San Antonio Food Bank has a hotline you can call for information and food access at (210) 431-8326 or visit them at HERE.
We hope these resources will prove valuable for you and should you have any questions on how to navigate the folder or documents please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (210) 370-PRIDE (7743). Also if you have any resources to add to this folder we hope you’ll send them our way! Especially resources available in languages besides English.

Like we mentioned above, we’re still available via phone, email, website, and social media during this time. We’re taking your calls, returning your emails and messages, and connecting with the community Monday-Thursday from 3-8pm and Saturday from 10am-2pm. So feel free to give us a call or send us an email! We would love to hear more about what kinds of remote programming and support you would like to see from us or what types of resources may be useful for you during this time. And most importantly we hope you’re taking care of yourselves as best you can and know that we cannot wait to see you all again soon.
