For Our Spiritual Health

Vashon Community Care Team Help Line

(206) 701-0694: open from 8:00am-8:00pm daily

We understand that this pandemic may result in increased anxiety, depression, and stress due to feelings of isolation and uncertainty.

Please call for emotional, psychological, or spiritual support. Leave a message if we are unable to answer. We are here to help!

The Spiritual Resources Group is a new arm of the Community Care Team. SRG is working with faith groups, poets, and others on this island to support the spiritual health of our community during this time of pandemic.

The Spiritual Resource Group recognizes that there are many spiritual communities on the island. Some are located in buildings. Others are less formal communities of belonging, meaning, care and celebration that may not consider themselves spiritual or religious, but do, in fact, feed the spirit.

In response to this pandemic, Spiritual Care Providers offer free phone support to Vashon/Maury Island community members.

The term “spiritual” is intended in as broad a sense as possible. It is not limited to and does not assume belief or religion. Care providers will respect and be guided by the perspectives, values, goals and experiences of the person seeking support. There will be no proselytizing or promoting of particular religious, spiritual, philosophical, moral, lifestyle, or other frameworks.

Supportive listening and reflection might be offered around:

  • Uncertainty
  • Purpose & self-worth
  • Hope
  • Despair
  • Belief/doubt/unbelief
  • Power & control
  • Imagination & creativity
  • Meaning
  • Anxiety
  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Loss
  • Loneliness
  • Mystery
  • Soul & spirit
  • Spiritual practice, resources
  • Rule of life
  • Spiritual trauma & abuse
  • Suicidality
  • Death
  • Grief/bereavement
  • Funeral/celebrations of life

Spiritual Care Providers are island neighbors recognized for cultivating their own spirituality and for gifts in compassionate listening. These volunteers are not to be considered as experts or authorities. The spiritual call line offers up to 3 one hour phone sessions. All conversations are confidential.
