More about the coronavirus Community Advocate

NCPC has hired Claudia Schauffler to be a Community Advocate, in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Not only has Claudia worked for us the past two summers in homeless outreach, but she has a career background in public health, and was one of the first people in the Nederland region to organize ways to help each other during this crisis. Through a generous designated gift, the church has signed her on and given her more resources to arrange for helping our neighbors in so many ways. This is the most critical month, and if May continues to present a deep need, we’ll find a way to keep her on to serve the community.

Claudia is in regular contact with all the other service providers from the Peak to Peak Human Services Alliance (ie, EFAA, the Food Pantry, Ned Area Seniors, Area Agency on Aging, Teens Inc, Center for People with Disabilities, etc). She can point you to the right agency for assistance, or utilize her ever-expanding team of volunteers to help with…

Picking up and delivering prescriptions from Boulder

Delivering firewood, if you are desperate

Arranging for snow plowing and shoveling

Picking up and delivering groceries — different stores have different rules, so arrange with her before ordering anything

Phone checkups for vulnerable or lonely folks

And please reach out if you have an issue we haven’t thought of.

If you or a neighbor needs something related to the pandemic, or if you want to offer assistance with any of these tasks or more, please reach out to Claudia at nedadvocate [at] gmail.com, or 303-258-3387.
