Local agencies team up to provide coronavirus support 

In response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Cazenovia-area agencies are teaming up to create a clearinghouse for local needs and resources.

The clearinghouse will be established at the CRIS (Community Resources for Independent Resources) office located at St. Peter’s Church on Mill Street. The intent is to establish a central hub that local residents can contact for assistance with needs such as transportation, nutrition, emergency child care or other factors created by the state of emergency declared in New York. Volunteers at the office will seek to match those needs with resources available from municipal agencies, local non-profits and individual donors.

Needs related to senior citizens should use the existing CRIS telephone number (315-655-5743). CRIS already maintains an active array of services for local seniors that will be expanded to meet current conditions. Those with other needs should call 315-655-9063 (provided by St. Peter’s Church). Local agencies or individuals who have resources that may be used to serve others can call either number. The two lines will be co-located so staff and volunteers can maintain a current listing. The office will be staffed from 9 to 3 daily initially and expand its hours as needed. Voicemail for after-hours calls will be available. Emergencies should be reported to 911.

The call center will be in active communication with local partners including the village and town governments, Cazenovia Central Schools, Cazenovia College, the Chamber of Commerce and local non-profits. For those community members who find that they are in need of emergency food supplies, CazCares, our local food pantry, can meet this need and can be reached directly at 315-655-3174. CazCares has initiated a curbside pickup of grocery staples in response to the COVID-19 situation.

Local agencies or citizens who are able to provide assistance to meet needs including, but not limited to, drivers, essential supplies, emergency child care options or financial support are urged to call in. CRIS will also develop a list of ongoing resources and local providers on its website at www.cris-caz.com. CRIS can be contact at 655-5743 or director@cris-caz.com.

More details will be announced as they are confirmed. Citizens are encouraged to visit the Madison County Health Department page for current information at: https://www.madisoncounty.ny.gov/2479/Coronavirus-COVID-19
