Mindfulness Spotlight: Remember you are awesome!

What makes you feel awesome? Coconino Coalition for Children and Youth encourages us to do more of it…mindfully. While we’re doing what makes us feel awesome, take an opportunity to savor it with all our senses!

United Way of Northern Arizona, Coconino County Launch COVID-19 Safety-Net Services Coalition

Coconino County has suffered greatly from the coronavirus pandemic. Our residents only make up about 2% of the state, but we have 6% of the COVID-19 cases and 10% of the fatalities attributed to the disease – the highest death rate in Arizona.

Add to that the economic impact of the disease. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the four industries that have been hardest hit in terms of unemployment during this time are hospitality, retail, education/health care services, and government. Those also are the sectors that make up the bulk of our jobs in northern Arizona.

The demands on our nonprofits are unprecedented. Which is why United Way of Northern Arizona established the COVID-19 Fund two months ago, and why we are teaming up with Coconino County to lead the COVID-19 Social Safety-Net Services Coalition.

Are we heading for a second wave requiring families in hotspots to once again shelter at home? Will schools reopen this summer or fall?

So many questions. At the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth, we have been busy trying to help families, partner organizations and members navigate this new virtual world. …
