Batavia Community CARE Program
In response to COVID-19, the City of Batavia is looking to coordinate with other local organizations within the City to provide caretaker services to help support the City's elderly and disabled population. Ultimately, the role of the City in this program will be to act as a “matchmaker.” We will coordinate with those in need and our partnering organizations to ensure all reasonable requests made by City residents are fulfilled.
If you have a need for food, shelter, financial assistance, etc., you can call 2-1-1 and a live operator will try to connect you with an agency that can assist you. But, if you are a senior or disabled person and you are just looking for someone who can run an essential errand like getting food or a prescription, contact Community Care at (630) 454-CARE or email email@example.com.
What does the program offer and who is operating it?
This program will coordinate free delivery of essential items (food, water, toiletries, medicine, etc.) to Batavia residents who are unable to obtain these items themselves.
The City of Batavia is partnering with several community organizations (RSVP, United Way, etc ) to offer services through this program.
How Do I Apply for Program Assistance?
Elderly and disabled residents who are having difficulty with obtaining essential supplies should contact the City of Batavia at (630) 454-CARE or email firstname.lastname@example.org
How to Sign Up as a Volunteer?
Send us an email at email@example.com, titled volunteer, with a phone number, address, organization if you have one, and your available days and hours that you can assist. Once we have this information we can confirm you on our list of caretakers and match you as the need arises during this time.
How Can I Make a Donation?
More than 1 million households in Illinois struggle to afford the basic necessities of housing, childcare, food, transportation, health care and technology. Now their struggle is even more difficult and Batavia is no exception. You can help.
You can donate to support social service agencies in Kane County that are helping children and families at this critical time with these basic needs and emergency assistance.
And, you can help support our grocery drives which deliver supplies right into the hands of local low income families and senior citizens.
Together, we can get through this! Donate to the COVID-19 Fund Through Batavia United Way
