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. 

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.

DURING THIS 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.

 

We offer two donation options:

“I have a hunch you are struggling with anxiety, fear and uncertainty like the rest of us. You have bills to pay, families to feed, cars to keep running, children to keep calm and cared for. Please know that you are not alone, or unappreciated.  You are surrounded by a community of care and prayer which may not know your name but honors your humanity. CDAIDE is a concrete representation of a wider community of support for you and your loved ones.”
