About Us

Mutual Aid is...

Mutual Aid is neighbors helping neighbors by pooling resources, supporting each others' needs, and showing solidarity through actions.

We are...

We are a grassroots organization created by neighbors for neighbors. We started with the aim of collectively helping our community cope with the physical, mental, emotional, and economic needs created by the COVID-19 crisis.

We will continue our work in response to the ongoing need of our community.

What we do:
Facilitate neighbor to neighbor support. Maintain and re-stock the KWT Fridge and Pantry, check-ins, prescription pickup, assistance accessing government benefits, and the provision of emergency funds. We sometimes partner with local groups to support our neighbors' needs.

Getting involved:

We welcome anyone to join our mutual aid network! Anyone can request or offer help.

We communicate primarily on email, Zoom, and face to face. We also meet in smaller groups to focus on specific issues and projects.

In February 2021, we stopped accepting new grocery requests while we worked through a backlog and began to shift the way we operate to better reflect a mutual aid model and not one of charity. We're currently piloting models for neighbors to support each other more directly and build in our community. Get involved! Help us work to strengthen our community and create lasting models of neighborhood mutual support!
