CARE Program - Energy Discounts in the Time of COVID-19!

East Bay Community Energy Logo East Bay Community Energy, a supporter of TVH through grants, encouraged us to share this information to our supporters and clients who might be going through hardships affording bills during this difficult time. EBCE wants to help our customers access financial assistance during the COVID pandemic. If you have recently lost your job or been furloughed, you may be eligible for up to a 35% discount on your electricity bill.

There are several ways to reduce the cost of your electricity and natural gas bill. The California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) Program is one of the best resources available – it provides low-income customers a 35 percent discount on their electric bill and a 20 percent discount on their natural gas bill. This page provides information on how you can take advantage of this assistance.

CARE is a state program which provides a discounted rate for electricity to qualifying low-income households.


REMINDER: HAVEN FOOD PANTRY OPEN DURING SHELTER-IN-PLACE

Food Supplies Image Our food pantry at 418 Junction Avenue, Livermore, remains open during the statewide shelter-in-place, providing food and resources to those in need in our community and we are taking steps to try to keep the food pantry environment safe for employees and those coming to us for help. However, providing resources during COVID-19 is a challenge for us and other food pantries. We definitely need help meeting the needs which will surely only grow. If you need services or want to make a donation, please call our hotline at 800-884-8119 and ask for hours. Thank you, and stay safe!


COVID-19 and Tri-Valley Haven

Coronavirus Image Friends,

We want to let you know that we are changing the way we do business in this trying time of the coronavirus. We have a plan that is a careful combination of continuing to provide care for folks in crisis while protecting staff, volunteers and clients as well. Our business office is closed though we will have a person at the office to accept deliveries of necessary supplies.

Our Crisis Line is still available 24/7; and so are our shelters and our Food Pantry. We are providing services by phone or computer in order to protect people while still responding to critical needs. If you are in need of our services, please call our Crisis Line at 925.449.5842

We specialize in care for those in crisis. Today we are working hard to respond to this new crisis. We hope and trust that you are exercising care for yourself and those around you.

As we move forward in this new way of being, I have a big ask for you. If you can afford to help us out please send a contribution. We want to continue paying our staff and purchasing critical supplies. Our costs have increased while our capacity has not. As you have probably experienced yourself, prices for everyday items are in some cases, criminal. We are trying to be prudent but there are some items we simply have to have on hand at our shelters and our pantry.

We will keep you in our thoughts and continue doing the best we can to assist in this difficult time. Thank you for your support for the mission of Tri-Valley Haven. We are all about peace and safety; we remain vigilant in serving our mission.


LUNAFEST Will Return!

Rated Equal LUNAFEST, a traveling film festival by and about women, was scheduled to show at the Vine Theater in Livermore on May 7th. Clearly, with shelter-in-place still in effect, we are unable to bring you this enchanting show, and we are disappointed.

However, "goodbye for now" is not "goodbye forever." We will reschedule LUNAFEST as soon as we are able, so watch this space and thank you, all of you, for everything you have been doing to support Tri-Valley Haven during this difficult time. Hang in there, everybody!


Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Support Groups

Counseling at Tri-Valley Haven! Currently, Tri-Valley Haven has openings for both individual counseling and group support. Groups for survivors of sexual assault will be held on Tuesdays from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. The support group for domestic violence survivors will be held on Tuesdays from 11:30 am to 1 pm, beginning February 25th, 2020 and will remain open to new enrollees for the first three weeks. Please call Tri-Valley Haven's intake line at 925-449-5845, extension 2852 to request counseling services. Participants must call ahead of time as individual sessions and groups are not drop-in.
