Loving Service Support:

 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Native Health Initiative (NHI), a partnership to address health inequities through Loving Service, wants to serve our community with the same love that funds and grounds all of our work. This will be a chance to connect NHIers who can meet each other's needs, as well as a chance for NHI to offer monetary support and connect families to services. Using the currency of love, those making requests will earn the support by offering their loving service back to the NHI community.

This response will provide resources and monetary funding primarily to the urban Indigenous communities of Albuquerque, but everyone is invited to APPLY


Our unique LOVE approach includes: 

  • Assistance      with identifying established resources and/or help with funding to pay for rental property or home mortgage.
  • Assistance with identifying established resources and/or help with funding for childcare services, to support the employees that have to work during this time.
  • Assistance with identifying established resources and/or help with funding for childcare services, to support the employees that have to work during this time.
  • Assistance with identifying established resources and/or help with funding for electric, gas, or water bills.
  • Offer wellness and physical movement support by virtual connection, through  NHI’s Running Medicine – Creating Community through Virtual Movement.
  • Offer Social Support by virtual connection, through our NHI’s Thankful Thursdays. Sharing gratitude, speaking to new  people, checking in with friends and families, and sharing new resourceful  ideas to cope with the pandemic at this time.
  • Access to established community resources, such as funding/grants for specific need, food, water, shelter, educational opportunities
  • Access to PPE: Do-It-Yourself/sewed face masks, gowns, and gloves/masks
