At RVMatchMaker.ORG we match frontline worker families and immuno-compromised individuals with unused RVs to self-isolate and potentially avoid devastating medical bills or death as a consequence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
With increasing frequency of disasters and declining resources from insurance and tax payers, we need to find new ways to optimize the resources to improve community resiliency. This project can save lives in response to a need that is underfunded.
We created this platform based on 5 years of firestorm experience and specialized knowledge with recreational RVs. Because we possess such unique knowledge, we felt it is our duty as Good Samaritans to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among those most at risk.
We have years of RV experience in the firestorm context and 9 dedicated volunteers with abundant enthusiasm. This platform works like a dating application, with the benefits of privacy and educational material to facilitate a successful match.
Please register below if you work in a facility that treats COVID-19 infections and need an RV to self-isolate.
WHERE THIS OFFER IS AVAILABLE
We are starting our offer in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are organized by county (Jurisdiction Having Authority), are prepared to initially serve the state of California and could go beyond that, if the circumstances merit support before the pandemic ends.
- Immunocompromised or on a medication that affects the immune system, organ or bone marrow transplant within the last six months.
- Tested positive for the COVID-19 in the last 90 days and in a high risk category according to the CDC.
- Pregnant or plan to become pregnant or breastfeeding. (See CDC Link)
In April of 2021, cases and deaths are skyrocketing to epic proportions in India. Healthcare workers are statistically more likely to have break through infections, inspite of full vaccination. The consensus at the moment is based on two theories for this (1) frontline workers were among the first vaccinated and at some point the efficacy of those vaccines will decline (2) The frontline is subjected to a very high viral load when dealing with active COVID infections, under the previous mutations. The current double mutant variant is highly transmissible, so the replication of the virus is happening faster, which creates even more risk for these workers.
With the close economic ties the Bay Area has with India, the protection we can give to frontline families may become highly valued again. Since the economy is resuming normal activity, we believe we need to shift our focus and resources from the highest risk vector (frontline) to creating a bubble around those needing protection, such as the immuno-compromised.
We have access to hundreds of thousands of RV owners through our personal relationships, so in spite of our late start with our offering, please don’t underestimate what we are capable of doing for you.
SCOPE OF INFORMATION AND SERVICES PROVIDED
There is significant work behind this platform and we think RV Owners will be delighted by the attention detail, as well as our depth of knowledge and expertise. Remaining content is extensive which includes advice on utilities, zoning, insurance, RV care and maintenance and being good neighbors –– as well as detailed suggestions on screening, applications and creating agreements.
We will not be a party to the agreement. Much like a real estate property rental, you will need to do your own due diligence in creating a mutually satisfactory arrangement. If you have rented property before then that part of the process will be familiar to you.
We have many partners to thank for graciously believing in us and offering their time and resources. We look forward to introducing you to them soon.
HOW IT WORKS
If an RV is needed or you wish to host or offer one, please register using the contact form below. While our platform is designed to be self-serve, we wish to understand the context of your situation, so that we will be better prepared to respond to more people like you in California with grace and efficiency.
We can and should reduce permanent financial harm and death for those serving on the frontlines.
Every moment counts and you can make a difference!
We wish you well.
