CRISIS RESPONSE

WE ARE WORKING HARD TO HELP HOSPITALITY WORKERS IN OUR COMMUNITY WITH PRESSING NEEDS

HOW TO GET THE HELP YOU NEED

CDAIDE’s crisis-response focus is on basic needs, including food security and housing stability. We work through a referral process to ensure care recipients are employed or recently employed in the restaurant or hospitality industry. At this time we are able to help folks who live in Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls or Hayden, ID. 

ABOUT REFERRALS

To receive support, you must be referred by another person (called a ‘sponsor’) who is aware of your need, preferably a supervisor or coworker.  We will contact the sponsor first, to determine the need and verify the details.  This process ensures that resources go only to those who work in the restaurant and hospitality sector (or have worked in the past three months and are actively seeking re-employment in these fields), and encourage care and community within the industry. We know that hard working folks often will not reach out for help themselves, even when they have significant needs.

If you need help, please ask a manager, owner, co-worker, or agency to refer you for assistance. We've also compiled a list of resources below.

 

We are working with a large volume of requests and will call you as soon as we possibly can to see how we can best meet your needs.

COMMENTS FROM OUR COVID CARE RECIPIENTS

“I’m a restaurant worker who usually has many jobs and plenty of income. At this time I have nothing. [With the help from CDAIDE] I was able to pay my rent with my savings and not have to worry about food. It was a huge help and, honestly, made all the difference in the world.” 4/13

 

“I heard of CDAIDE from my place of work. I remember my boss donating some gift cards to help them raise money [for the Care Affair]. I did not realize at the time that I would be needing some aide myself down the road when COVID struck our community. I still have some struggles, but the volunteer was very kind and reassured me that I was thought of and taken care of. I deeply appreciate the efforts of CDAide. Thank you very much.” 4/6

 

“I’m so thankful to CDAIDE. I was so stressed. Just a little help encouraged me! The grocery card was just what I needed for my family.” 4/3

COMMUNITY RESOURCES

 

DURING THIS CONTINUING CRISIS, THE NEEDS OF HOSPITALITY WORKERS IN OUR COMMUNITY ARE GREATER THAN EVER

CDAIDE EMERGENCY FUND

You can help CDAIDE to meet these needs by donating to support housing stability and food security for restaurant and hospitality workers in greater Coeur d’Alene. Those in need are referred by managers or co-workers and fully vetted. 100% of funds raised go directly to support emergency needs for workers right in our community and are fully tax-deductible.

CDAIDE has received extra funds during this crisis and we are extremely grateful for the generosity of these foundations and organizations and their commitment to serving restaurant and hospitality workers in our community.

GRATITUDE

“I just wanted to thank you guys for everything again!!  You guys really helped me get back on my feet and I am so grateful.  The house and car are doing great!!”
