Tue, 03/17/2020 - 10:45am

    Here at Boothbay Region Community Resource Council (BRCRC), we always want to consider the health and well-being of each member of our community while carrying out our mission. It is one of the ways in which we survive here on this peninsula: as one community together and we will do so to get through the current situation with the COVID-19 virus.

    At this time,the BRCRC office will be closed to all clients and visitors. Our Community Navigator, Hannah Corkum, maybe reached via her cell phone: 207-350-1743. Please use this number during the time of closer if you need to contact the BRCRC office. Even though our staff will be working remotely, they will be continuing their work to communicate and check in with our clients and we will constantly be assessing the needs as they change each day.Holly Stover, our Addiction Outreach Specialist, is also accessible at this number: 207-350-7477.

    In an effort to limit contact and practice social distancing guidelines, we have suspended most of our daily operations with our programs. We continue to work with community partners to evaluate the best way to provide services while still keeping our clients, volunteers and staff as safe as possible.We are putting together a volunteer sign up as we continue to gauge each day what the needs of the community may be:we anticipate that grocery delivery, particularly to our elderly and those afraid to exit their homes, will be an important service to provide in the near future.

    We will continue to communicate and work with other community partners in order to utilize and provide forms of our services to our community clients who are in need. If you have any questions regarding our volunteer process, please contact Breanna Davis at 207-633-4357.

    Please utilize our Facebook page as we will continue to provide and share updates, community information, and other items on our page as they become available to us. Also, we encourage people to stay up-to-date on the current health regulations and suggestions offered by the Center for Disease Control, the Maine CDC and the World Health Organization. We will continue to do our best to offer and serve those members in our community who maybe at need during this time.

    In closing, we ask that all members of our community practice patience, compassion, and respect for all here on the peninsula during these trying times. We, as a collective community, will be facing new challenges each day and will navigate these difficult waters together, helping those who are in need with safe, smart practices. Be healthy, be well and don’t hesitate to contact us if you are in need.
