Anyone remember Ally McBeal, a quirky television show popular in 1997? One of the most relevant Ally McBeal “clips” has to do with theme songs the main character plays in her head. Take a moment and think…what would your theme song be during this COVID19 crisis?

Mine? “What the world needs now is love

There are so many people who were struggling with their everyday lives and lacking the “love” and support they need to survive before the COVID-19 pandemic. When you add on the layer of risk and anxiety that we’re all facing, these high risk people need our help even more. While staying at home and “sheltering in place” might be an inconvenience for many of us, just take a minute to think about this scenario: What would you do if you did not have a home or a place to shelter in? What if you recently went through a life changing situation that you are already struggling with and you had nobody to turn to? Would you welcome help?

We ask that you think about those in need during this time and how you may be able to make a difference in someone’s life. This is central to the work we do at Triangle Family Services.

So…take a minute and reflect. What is your theme song during this time? Post and share that with us on social media, we’d love to hear the soundtrack guiding your thoughts today. We look forward to connecting with you and, together, continuing to serve as the safety net for families in crisis.
