Amidst COVID-19, RiverWise has been focused on the following strategic priorities:
Providing access to information relevant to Beaver County individuals and organizations
Telling the stories of Beaver County residents serving others throughout the COVID-19 crisis
Aggregating community needs, identifying opportunities, and working towards solutions
Encouraging those within our network through writing, gathering, and sharing experiences
Take a look below to see how these priorities are guiding the way we are thinking about community making amidst the Coronavirus crisis.
Beaver County COVID-19 Data Hub
Created by our fiscal sponsor, the Beaver County Regional Council of Governments, this page provides information, maps, and resources about the coronavirus response in our area and beyond.
“The Helpers” Video Series
Residents of Beaver County have gone above and beyond to help one another during COVID-19, and the RiverWise team has worked to capture many of these experiences and activities on video.
“The Helpers” Multimedia Series
The stories of COVID-19 are complex, so RiverWise has partnered with a team of Beaver County artists to show that complexity in picture, video, writing, and audio form. See a collection of their work.
Community Builder Corps
Patterned after Depression Era programs, the Community Builder Corps employs recently unemployed individuals to work on three-month long community-focused projects.
RiverWise Equity Strategy
Equitable access to local, state, and federal resources will not happen by accident. Read about RiverWise’s plan to ensure an equitable distribution of resources amidst COVID-19.
RiverWise has recently partnered with Rustbelt Mayberry Photography to capture images of Beaver County residents during the Coronavirus pandemic. We’ve included a few of those photos here. You can see the full library at this link.
