Cville Community Cares
Cville Community Cares is a local grassroots mutual aid response to the COVID-19 pandemic working in partnership with local clergy group Congregate Cville. It consists of community members rooted in a philosophy of abundance; its organizing centers solidarity with its neighbors rather than charity. Its work is built on, and inspired by, mutual aid efforts such as Charlottesville Immigrant Transit Assistance (CHITA), Hands Off Maria, and the Charlottesville Community Resilience Fund. It is a partner in the Community Emergency Response Fund with the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF) and the United Way of Greater Charlottesville.
