The true strength of a community shines brightest in times of adversity. Now more than ever, as we navigate the COVID-19 crisis, Lake Havasu City is staking priority in the livelihood of its citizens and businesses. Many of our valued community members have already been adversely affected by the current situation, and action needs to be taken to address these pressing concerns. Lake Havasu City, along with local trusted resources, have formed the LHC Resource Alliance to provide assistance with food, relief funds, business support and mental health services.

The LHC Resource Alliance is housed by the City of Lake Havasu and will connect the community through the COVID-19 crisis. The collaborative is spearheaded by Vice Mayor David Lane, and comprised of the Lake Havasu Area Chamber of Commerce, Havasu Community Heath Foundation, River Cities United Way and Better Business Bureau. The mission of this alliance is to funnel our trusted resources into one easily accessible location, through the City, for the protection, education and assistance of our community. A single point of entry will ensure our most vulnerable population will not only receive the proper services they need, but also protect them from falling victim to inaccurate and potentially dangerous information.

“We recognized residents and business owners were going to need help, and we also knew many people were offering to help, with neither group knowing where to turn. Lake Havasu City has many organizations which already provide many of these important services at a local level. It was our responsibility to bring them together so people had a trusted and verified portal to access information and obtain relief,” explains Vice Mayor David Lane.
