While schools, businesses and government agencies are shut down or working remotely during the Covid-19 outbreak, the need for support services is greater than ever. For everything from food distribution to mental health services, community groups and social service agencies are doing everything they can to maintain their outreach and support services.
If you need support of any kind, a good starting point is the Bucks County 211 service. Just call 211 from any phone in the county (including cell phones) and you will be connected with a support specialist who can direct you to the services you need. This includes everything from housing and employment issues to substance abuse and mental health services.
The Bucks 211 service is operated through the United Way of Bucks County. Support staff is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Multi-lingual services are also available.
Neshaminy School District information can be found at www.neshaminy.org/covid-19. There you can find help with online schooling, free meal distribution for children, and counseling services available to District students and their families.
The #StandUp Neshaminy Sunset Challenge 5k/2k race scheduled for Friday, May 1 has been postponed. Look for information on a possible new date in May.
