CPR Launches Cleveland Recovers Community Hub

Cleveland Pandemic Response (CPR) recently launched Cleveland Recovers mutual aid community hub to help to bridge gaps in need for Clevelanders affected by Covid-19 outbreak. The Cleveland Recovers hub connects individuals seeking assistance with those able to provide assistance.

Cleveland Recovers hub is designed to facilitate community preparedness and recovery. Individuals can request help or sign up to donate or volunteer. Local organizations can also sign up to provide donations or volunteer service via hub portal.

CPR formed as a volunteer group of organizers and community members to address the collective needs of the Cleveland community and aims to provide mutual aid and support to Northeast Ohio residents during Covid-19 pandemic. The approach offers a grassroots response to needs-exchange that empowers and builds leadership at the ground level. CPR arises from the idea that community members and organizations can come together to support each other, with people voluntarily offering and asking for support rather than a top-down charity approach.

CPR’s public Facebook page is used to share needs from the community hub, deliver news updates and provide other national and local resources regarding Covid-19. CPR’s Instagram page is a space for inspiration and learning with a focus on mutual aid and grassroots theories, as well as positive announcements and requests. CPR’s Twitter page serves to share news and information from the Governor, health organizations, community organizations and other mutual aid projects.
