Basic Needs Resources

Basic Needs Resources:

We know that when basic needs go unmet, students cannot learn and grow to their full potential. During our current COVID-19 crisis, needs for basics like food and clothing are growing. We are here to help our Chávez families.

4J School District has created a COVID-19 Crisis Wraparound Team that Chávez is proud to be a part of. The mission of this team is to care for and support our families. If you have a need that you do not see addressed below, please let us know.

  • Our Weekend Food Backpack Program will continue during the school closure. Please contact Ms. Angie for more information.
  • Although our Chávez Clothes Closet is currently closed, we partner with Bags of Love to continue to help get clothing to families. [insert link to Bags of Love:]
  • Lane County Public Health has a non-emergency COVID-19 Information Line: 541-682-1380. It is operated daily (including weekends) from 8:00AM-8:00PM. You can call in and talk about anything ranging from physical health symptoms (they have nurses on staff), to where to access food, to information on rent assistance, to whether you can launch a boat from certain sites during the pandemic.
  • Local Community Resources list:
  • Chávez School Social Worker, Ms. Shannon, is available as always for help and support.
