Since the end of March, the Blaine County Recovery Committee has partnered with dozens of organizations, community leaders, nonprofits, businesses and health agencies to create a one-stop shop for business, nonprofit and personal recovery from the effects of the coronavirus.

Today, the committee continues to look for needs in the community and to provide resources to fill those needs, which include access to personal protective equipment for businesses and translations into Spanish for non-English speakers. According to Aimée Christensen, who sits on the steering committee for the group, as the surge of the coronavirus has receded in Blaine County, the group has adjusted to concentrate resources where they are most needed.

This week, 400 families that received bags of food from The Hunger Coalition also received a double-sided sheet of information, in English and Spanish, of resources that they can access for mental and physical health, and financial assistance.
