Online Resources to support Santa Cruz (F-U-COVID-19)

We are in this together – we are a community – we are Santa Cruz.

Do you know about YANA?

Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office now offers the ‘You Are Not Alone’ (YANA) program to provide phone calls to homebound seniors and those with disabilities to promote a peace of mind and sense of confidence living alone, as well as for their families. YANA is an excellent program for those who enjoy living independently but do not have friends or family living close by to regularly check in on them.

Cruzian Catering has teamed up our local Santa Cruz nonprofit, The Ihangane Project–TIP Global Health, to provide food for the elderly, those who are vulnerable with existing health conditions, and most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
