Jan 30 all-day

 

The Alexander Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3, all-volunteer organization whose sole focus is to give back to the LGBTQ+ community of Colorado.

ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS

COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE GRANT

This program provides assistance to those individuals who are experiencing temporary financial difficulties. Community Assistance is intended for immediate needs such as rent, security deposits, medical expenses, food, clothing, utility bills, and other basic living expenses. Assistance checks are issues only to third parties; for example, the recipient’s landlord or utility company.

Eligibility

Applicants must be:

  • Part of the LGBTQ+ community

  • Reside in Colorado

  • Pre-approved by a recognized Referral Agency

Applicants must demonstrate financial need and must not have received Community Assistance from The Alexander Foundation within the previous 12-month period. The maximum amount of assistance is $200. Individuals may only receive assistance three (3) times.

THE ROCKY MOUNTAINEERS MOTORCYCLE CLUB OF COLORADO CATASTROPHIC ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

This program is intended to provide support to those who are at risk of losing their ability to provide basic life needs due to treatment or complications related to cancer, a catastrophic illness, or a serious illness. Examples include medical care, housing, food, clothing, phones, and utilities. Unlike one-time assistance provided through the Community Assistance Program, this program provides fixed monthly assistance for up to 12 months. The amount of assistance is determined by the recipients’ needs but cannot exceed $2400 (or $200 per month).

Eligibility

Applicants must be:

  • Part of the LGBTQ+ community

  • Reside in Colorado

  • Have been diagnosed with a form of cancer, catastrophic illness, or serious injury. HIV positive status alone does not qualify someone for this program.

  • The applicant’s healthcare provider must certify the condition or diagnosis.

Applicants must demonstrate financial need, and cannot have received financial assistance from the Foundation during the previous 6 months. The “Certification of Medical Condition” must come from the applicant’s healthcare provider, and may also be e-mailed or faxed.

HOLIDAY LETTER ASSISTANCE

The Holiday Letter Assistance program provides one-time assistance during the traditional holiday season from November through December. The amount of assistance is based on need and the financial support appeal response from the community.

Eligibility

The recipient must be:

  • Part of the LGBTQ+ community

  • Reside in Colorado

  • Demonstrate financial need 

A certification from a Referral Agency must accompany the application. Individuals may receive Holiday Letter Assistance a maximum of three times. Holiday letter Assistance is issued to third parties based on the need expressed in the application.

Application Process

Three to four weeks before the deadline, The Alexander Foundation’s Assistance Programs Director will notify Referral Agencies when Holiday Letter Assistance applications are due (typically at the end of November/early December). Referring agencies are encouraged to contact The Alexander Foundation to ensure all mailed applications have been received.

HOW TO APPLY: COMMUNITY & CATASTROPHIC ASSISTANCE APPLICATION PROCESS
All Assistance Program applications MUST come from a Referral Agency. Applications are processed as they are received, and distributions occur within three to four weeks of receipt of the completed application.
 Referral Agencies must fax or e-mail assistance applications to The Alexander Foundation’s office on behalf of an applicant; mailed applications will not be accepted. To learn more about these programs, including the information required for Community Assistance and Catastrophic Assistance Grants, please contact a Referral Agency.

Online BIPOC Veteran Peer Support Specialist Training – April 2022

NAMI Multnomah is pleased to offer this Oregon Health Authority (OHA) approved Peer Support Specialist Training (PSST) for adults in Mental Health recovery. In collaboration with Cultivating a New Life LLC, we will offer the Warriors in Recovery: Forging an Alliance of Peers, Peer Support Specialist Training, 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙞𝙛𝙞𝙘 𝙩𝙤 𝙑𝙚𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙈𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙮 𝙎𝙚𝙧𝙫𝙞𝙘𝙚 𝙈𝙚𝙢𝙗𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙛𝙮𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙨 𝘽𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙠, 𝙄𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙜𝙚𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙤𝙧 𝙖𝙨 𝙖 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙤𝙧 (𝘽𝙄𝙋𝙊𝘾).

Warriors in Recovery: Forging an Alliance of Peers represents 44 hours of comprehensive training designed to inform and empower individuals wishing to work as peers for veterans within peer-delivered services, assisting individuals past or presently affected by mental health services, mental health system survival, addiction(s), co-occurring disorder(s), and traumatic experience(s), as they re-enter the community utilizing naturally occurring support.

The core elements of this program include wellness coping skills and WRAP training (Wellness Recovery Action Plan), all from a social justice framework with an emphasis on trauma-informed care, cultural humility model and narrative approaches. Through a narrative approach, participants will recognize the power of the stories that they tell themselves, and how to reconstruct their life narrative according to person-centered principles that will assist them in reducing the influence of problems in their lives.

Individuals who complete the 44-hour PSST training are eligible to become Oregon State Certified Peer Support Specialists for adult mental health under the Traditional Health Worker (THW) program. The training consists of 44 online classroom hours and a written exam.

This training is offered at no cost to Veterans and Active/Past Military Service Members who live, work, or volunteer in the state of Oregon.

Oregon Al-Anon and Alateen Family Groupstext image that says Al-Anon can help, Al-Anon is an anonymous fellowship of people who feel their lives have been deeply affected by someone else's drinking

Al-Anon is an anonymous fellowship of mutual support for people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking.

Alateens are members of the Al‑Anon Family Groups who have suffered because of the alcoholism of a loved one.

See Alateen Safety Guidelines (PDF format).

Newcomers Information

Excerpt(s):

How will Al-Anon help me?

Many who come to Al-Anon/Alateen are in despair, feeling hopeless, unable to believe that things can ever change. We want our lives to be different, but nothing we have done has brought about change. We all come to Al-Anon because we want and need help.

In Al-Anon and Alateen, members share their own experience, strength, and hope with each other. You will meet others who share your feelings and frustrations, if not your exact situation. We come together to learn a better way of life, to find happiness whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

Reprinted with permission of Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc.

 

Al-Anon can help you:

  • Hear others’ experiences
  • Find healthier ways to respond to the addicted person
  • Understand your own role in addiction and recovery
  • Learn the importance of supporting your loved one
  • Focus on today using the “one step at a time” approach

Al-Anon is not for people trying to find their own recovery. It is only for the people who love and care for them.

Dual Diagnosis Anonymous

 

 

“You protected us, now we support you!”

https://ddainc.org/dda-veterans-page/

DDA was founded by a highly decorated veteran, Corbett Monica. After serving in the Vietnam War, like other veterans, returning to home only find anguish, trauma, and remorse. After suffering from severe PTSD, OCD, survivors guilt, and addictions, Corbett found a way to transcend from destructive means with the inception of Dual Diagnosis Anonymous (DDA) providing hope and recovery through our peer support which is now his legacy.

Culturally responsive DDA’s Veterans meetings are intended to provide a safe venue to be open about depression, post-traumatic stress, alcohol and drug use, abuse, and addiction as well as serve as a resource for navigation of the telehealth system, It will encourage healthy solutions for adapting to the changing times. Specifically. the project will Improve access for Veterans and military service members to dual diagnosis services through the creation of on-line recovery support groups and on-line DDA meetings.

This project will serve Veterans throughout the state and is beginning outreach through Veterans publications, local newspapers, the VA, Veterans websites, list services, and anything else that will help identify Oregonians who can use the services.

Military Children Resources

Military kids face unique psychological challenges related to military life. Compared to their non-military peers, military kids are many times more likely to move multiple times during their school careers and have a parent absent for long periods of time in potentially dangerous locations – factors that can greatly stress military kids’ mental health.

The Defense Health Agency maintains two online resources to support military children use the links povided below:

  • Military Kids Connect is an online community specifically for military children ages 6-17, and provides access to age-appropriate resources for military kids and also for parents, caregivers, and educators to help them understand and support military kids at home and in school.
  • Sesame Street for Military Families is a free, bilingual (English and Spanish) website where families can find information and multimedia resources on the topics of military deployments, multiple deployments, homecomings, injuries, grief, and self-expression.

A 12-step recovery program

https://www.foodaddicts.org/

Food addiction can take many forms. Symptoms include obesity, under eating, and bulimia. People often think of the term “eating disorders” when describing the disease of food addiction. Food addicts are obsessed with food, body size, and weight. We spend our days thinking about when and what we are going to eat or not eat. Binging, purging, and dieting are a way of life. The bottom line is that we can’t stop thinking about eating. Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) offers relief from the symptoms of eating disorders and guidance on living in recovery.

 The Q Center: Out of Portland OR, Continues To Offer Several Virtual, Diverse Support Groups for People in the LGBTQ+ Community:

As the largest LGBTQ+ community center in the Pacific Northwest, Q Center proudly serves the LGBTQ2SIA+ communities of Portland Metro and Southwest Washington. Our drop-in and event space on North Mississippi Avenue is a frequent first stop for new arrivals in Portland, and for longtime residents who are newly out or questioning their sexual or gender identity.

Q Center also serves as an information hub for friends, partners, community, and family members of LGBTQ2SIA+ individuals. We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach and seek out ways to share resources with other nonprofits and public institutions locally and statewide.

 

To learn about the many groups offered by the Q Center, here is the link to their calendar page: https://www.pdxqcenter.org/calendar.

To register for any of these groups please either email info@pdxqcenter.org, or call 503-234-7837.
