COVID-19 Health Resources
As COVID-19 drastically affects the world, our country and our community, it is imperative that we protect the most vulnerable members of society. The health and well-being of our volunteers, participants and families continue to be of the utmost importance.
WE ARE PREVENTS
#MoreThanEverBefore, we must pay attention to our emotional health and well-being, and the emotional health and well-being of those we love. This isn't an option--it's a necessity. Listen and learn the steps you can take to help yourself and others get through this challenging time
CENTER FOR DISEASE control
See here for the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Coronavirus information. VA has implemented an aggressive public health response to protect and care for Veterans in the face of this emerging health risk.
A letter from our ceo
"We recognize that we are in a fluid, evolving situation. People all over the world are being asked to give up what they love: time each day to learn new things, to grow, and, most importantly, to share time together with friends..."
DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS
Got a fever, cold, cough or flu-like symptoms? Are you worried that you have a viral illness? The last thing you want to do is get out of the house to see the doctor, exposing yourself (and others) to more potential bugs and viruses.
Virtual Meeting Resources
Reach more veterans in need and provide a continuum of care your program during these uncertain times.
Facebook Live broadcasts enable you to provide fly tying tutorials, Q&A sessions, fly fishing education and more! If the broadcast is from a public page, individuals can watch it without a Facebook profile (or without logging in)!
Since they're public this has two added bonuses: recruitment of new volunteers/participants and elevating your program for online fundraising and outreach. The videos are also saved for future use!
YouTube Live streams can be hosted only through approved YouTube channels. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for approval. The St. Cloud Program is using their regular meeting times to host weekly fly tying tutorials at the same time, same place each week
Messenger Video Chats on Facebook Messenger are designed for small groups and are closed to the greater public - limited to only 8 people. This can be effective if you have a smaller program or need to have closer, one-on-one engagement with participants.
Virtual Meeting Tutorials
Hosting your virtual event in the 'public square' is an enormous opportunity for outreach and recruitment.
Don't close the door on potential participants or volunteers!
Facebook Live lets you broadcast video in real-time to your followers, as well as directly to an event page or group—all from your mobile phone (or tablet). As you broadcast, people tune in and engage with you through comments and likes! You can respond to these comments in real-time or answer them live via the video feed.
Because Facebook Live broadcasts are public, it is a great option to reach veterans in-need across the country and expose our unique brand of therapy to those who can benefit from it while simultaneously connecting with PHWFF program participants and volunteers. Since the broadcast is done on a public page, individuals can watch it without a Facebook profile (or without logging in)!
YouTube Live is an easy way to reach your participants and volunteers in real time. Whether you're hosting a live Q&A, or teaching a class, these tools will help you manage your stream and interact with viewers in real time.
Because YouTube Live broadcasts are public, it is a great option to reach veterans in-need across the country and expose our unique brand of therapy to those who can benefit from it while simultaneously connecting with PHWFF program participants and volunteers.
Facebook Messenger is an instant messaging feature built into Facebook. The application and website is an instant messaging service that connects to Facebook. It allows Facebook users to connect with each other and send instant messages, emoji, photos, videos, and perform other light tasks like group video chats.
You can video chat with just one person, or with a group of people (up to 8 individuals).
