Social Distancing Music Group

Social Distancing Music Group

No doubt, this social distancing thing is hard on all of us. Social gatherings are the lifeblood of Indwell’s programs, and yet—as for so many—social distancing rules and recommendations have meant that for the time-being we can’t meet together as we usually do. For tenants at the Perkins Centre in Hamilton, Friday Music Club is one such program that’s been impacted.

That didn’t stop our Hamilton apartments team from trying something new. Inspired by videos of people in Italy playing music from their balconies, they found a way for this important social “gathering” to still happen. Equipped with a few pylons and an extension cord, tenant Bill Vis enthusiastically took to the parking lot and played some of his favourite hymns for tenants and neighbours to enjoy “together.”

What you can do right now

During this crisis, Indwell is providing additional supports for tenants. We need your gifts now—even more than before—as we navigate through these challenges, and as we continue to provide communities of hope.

Now, more than ever, it is important that our tenants feel connected with others, even if they cannot be physically connected. Mail a card or note of encouragement to be shared with our tenants who may be feeling isolated at this time.

Indwell has established a special fund to address food security and increase wellness programs for tenants. It is important that they maintain their physical and mental health during this unsettling time of social distancing and self-isolation.

Pray

Please pray for Indwell’s tenants, especially those who struggle with isolation and loneliness during this time. Please remember our staff who provide direct support to our tenants.
