Umbrella is a national business that helps seniors connect with recommended providers. In light of COVID-19, Umbrella is now using their business as a way to sign up volunteers and have them shop for a senior's groceries while they shop for themselves (and deliver them). It's a really easy way for someone to help but truly makes a difference for a senior.
"Brown Girl Therapy is a wellness and mental health community for first- and second-generation immigrants. I created this community because I found myself constantly curating who I was in different circles to feel accepted, and I wanted a space where I could honestly explore what it meant to be bicultural and educate on, promote, and normalize therapy and support-seeking behaviors in marginalized communities."
