The iBelong Project

iBelong is a volunteer-powered project of the heart sponsored by Justicewise.

Our work in Sonoma County, CA is growing.

Text FOOD

Text FOOD is a text message-based tool that connects people who are hungry to information about where to get food nearby. With Text FOOD, Sonoma County residents can use their cellphones to text the word FOOD to our phone number and get an immediate response with the information they need.

Text FOOD is the first tool in a growing toolkit of collaborative infrastructure being built to support those who seek to create conditions that give shelterless and low-income residents the options they need to make choices that promote resilience and good health. Because everyone should be able to choose to eat.

The countywide program is being phased in during May & June 2020. It is supported by St. Joseph Healthcare System, Rebuild North Bay, Redwood Empire Food Bank, Sonoma Intersections Coalition, Grace Cheung-Schulman, and many other homeless advocates.

FACES

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.

Please contact FACES Artistic Director, Kathleen Finigan, to learn more or to inquire about hosting the exhibit: gofinniego@gmail.com
