Small gifts of calm and connection for frontline healthcare workers
We offer free, confidential, 30-minute conversations for first responders, relief workers, healthcare professionals, and their families to stay grounded.
UPDATE: We stand in solidarity with all who are protesting the killings of George Floyd and the countless other black men, criminal justice inequality, and systemic racism.
We are extending our services to anyone who is seeking space to process what is happening right now.
"I didn’t know how much I needed this! Or even what I needed. I was taking care of my patients and my family but neglecting myself in the process. It was so nice to just have someone listen and validate how hard this all is. After my coaching session and brainstorming I came up with my month’s theme of “Slay The Day May!” It’s been a week and I am still doing just that!"
Sage Weaver, Occupational Therapist for COVID+ patients at Kaiser Permanente

Stay focused and motivated in difficult times
Deepen inner peace and mental clarity
Cultivate a sense of well-being, mindfulness, and connectedness

"I was feeling stagnant and burned out at work. My coach guided me through a meaningful process that brought clarity to the vision for my life and a clear path of how to get there. The COVID Compassion Project provides an incredible opportunity to improve your perspective during these uncertain times. This is a true gift."
Kasey Topp, PA-C, Physician Assistant at Arvada Family Practice
The Covid Compassion Project is an emerging, self-organizing network of volunteer professional leadership/life/career/resilience/mindfulness coaches, healers, and community facilitators supporting those who matter most - and their families - during the evolving crisis.
Our mission is to help people to feel supported, connected, and in community.
How does it work? Individuals who are seeking support can sign up directly on this website and schedule a 30-minute coaching session with one of our volunteer coaches. Sessions are conducted remotely. There is no obligation, fee, or contract. Just a conversation with heart.
Do you provide therapy? For legal reasons, we do not provide licensed therapy. We connect consenting adults for care and support. Our coaches are professionally trained to provide mental, emotional, and spiritual support as effectively and humanly as possible. Our mission is to use the skills we have to help those who matter most right now.
What data is collected? We ask for minimal information from people looking for support. Any data collected from care givers and receivers will be kept strictly confidential. All personally identifiable information will be deleted after 180 days.
