Available Resources for COVID-19

Dear Petoskey Community Members,

Below are several great resources that you may want to share with "at-risk populations" or anyone having a hard time coping with the current pandemic. Feel free to share accordingly.

The following resources may be helpful:
https://afsp.org/ (Experiencing anxiety or other mental health issues)
https://riseandshine.childrensnational.org/ (Resources for children)

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has also launched a COVID-19 Hotline 1-888-535-6136 that is available 7 days a week from 8:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. and staffed by a public health expert who can respond to your calls.

Char-Em United Way: Information and referrals to local resources, including school food programs, can be reached by calling 211. This resource is free and available 24/7.

Char-Em United Way Community Economic Relief Fund to help with bills, rent and food – Call 1-866-211-9966.

During difficult times like these it is critical that we reach out in an appropriate and safe manner (social distancing) to older family members, neighbors or other at-risk groups. As community members it is incumbent for us to not panic but practice a heightened awareness of the conditions around us.
