The DreamCatchers Kindness and Compassion Initiative
During the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, DreamCatchers aims to continue serving our vulnerable populations at risk. To do this, we have launched our “Kindness and Compassion” Initiative to help combat the current tide of social isolation facing the senior population.
The brunt of Covid-19 will be borne by the poor, elderly, and sick and it is up to us to ensure they are not left behind.Former US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy
This nationwide initiative invites individuals and communities everywhere to take part in creating a solution to help alleviate the impact of social isolation on senior well-being through one of two primary methods:
1. Virtual “Pen Pal” Program
an interactive technology-driven program involving virtual conversations and shared experiences between seniors and volunteers, in the form of a “pen-pal” exchange. Options to utilize video, email, or text.
2. Video (or physical ) Greeting Cards
videos or homemade cards created by volunteers to be sent to nursing homes, senior living, and assisted living facilities to increase outside interaction and entertainment for those in isolation.
