The iBelong Project
iBelong is a volunteer-powered project of the heart sponsored by Justicewise. We believe that human connection lies at the heart of community wellbeing. iBelong exists to build neighborly connections as the foundation of a healthy, vibrant community that works together to solve shared challenges. Our work in Sonoma County, CA is growing.
Text FOOD is a bilingual program that connects people who are hungry to nearby locations that distribute free food. Sonoma County residents who use their cellphone to text the word FOOD or COMIDA to our phone number will get an immediate response with the information they need in English or Spanish.
Text FOOD is being phased in countywide in June 2020. The program was made possible by seed funding from St. Joseph Healthcare System and Rebuild North Bay, as well as the hearts and hands of community members from Sonoma Intersections Coalition, St. Joseph Community Investments, homeless advocates, and Health Action.
FACES is a series of 40 portraits of some of our unsheltered neighbors in Santa Rosa. The vibrant images were created by photographer Salvador “Pocho” Sanchez-Strawbridge, and co-produced with Homeless Action! These are portraits of dignity in the face of adversity, reflecting the humanity of people who fully deserve our respect and dedicated assistance.
Thank you to the Sonoma County Commission on Human Rights, Marion Weinreb in memory of Max Steven Jackson Weinreb, and a host of Sponsoring Friends whose contributions helped produce this powerful exhibit.
Contact FACES Producer, Kathleen Finigan, at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or to inquire about hosting the exhibit.
