SEEKING NOMINATIONS FOR COMMUNITY MEMBERS
was founded in 2017 with a goal of providing access to healthy
lifestyle options for our community. As we grew, we created a community
outreach arm in order to go beyond the classes that we offered within
our walls to create fitness options accessible to all. The goal was to
reduce or remove the barrier to entry to aid our community that may be
dealing with health-related illness but not know where to start from a
physical perspective. While ideally broad reaching, the target has been
to connect with the surrounding black communities of Philadelphia which
are typically hardest hit by systemic inequalities which lead to reduced
health outcomes. Throughout the pandemic, we have offered Community
Fitness classes for free; we recognized early in the lockdown that
people were being more sedentary which can lead to a diminished immune
system as well as onset of depression.
Our next initiative involves providing free memberships to nominated and
qualified members of our community. We are working with local
organizations and groups to accept nominations for individuals who seek
to raise our communities and whom could benefit from direction as it
pertained to a healthy lifestyle. Through creating awareness and access,
we hope to increase the perception of how a healthy lifestyle can
benefit long term health prognosis and life enjoyment.
In seeking nominations, we are looking for the following:
Nominee’s name and contact information
Name and contact information for the submitting individual
Background on relationship with the nominee
How the nominee would benefit from the OBA CF Membership
How the nominee would benefit the community by having access to an OBA CF Membership
During the time of the pandemic,
patient-families are in urgent need of private-setting lodging. Please
let us know if you or anyone you know may have some type of private
housing to offer at any time now through next winter: e.g., AirBnBs,
carriage houses, in-law suites, corporate apartments, vacant homes or
apartments, places of people becoming ‘snowbirds’.
HOSTS for HOSPITALS
continues the call to help build their network of safe,
socially-distant housing for patient-families coming to Greater
Philadelphia for medical care.

Request water bill assistance before shutoffs restart in 2021
The Philadelphia Water Department and
PhilaRevenue took the bold step of extending COVID-19 emergency
water-protection measures. That means residential and commercial water
customers won’t be shut off until April 1, 2021 –even in the case
non-payments. However, if you’re not paying your water bill, your
balance will continue to grow and become harder to manage once shutoffs
restart. Get ahead of the problem by applying for water bill help
today: www.phila.gov/water-bill-help. A loss of income during the pandemic may qualify you for special assistance.
