In Timbulharjo Village, Sewon District, Bantul Regency, Special Region of Yogyakarta, the Covid-19 pandemic has reached its ninth month. Individual citizens have economic limitations in preventing a pandemic. Refusal of migrants who come back from big cities has the potential to increase conflict. These conditions make the installation of independent quarantine and the accompanying empowerment program needed by the community. This program helps solve citizens' problems. The program was built through collaborative community service and facilitation processes, thereby stimulating residents to realize other local initiatives in dealing with Covid-19. This dedication not only provides relief items but also harmonizes local planning, management, and resources that can be carried out independently by the community. Planning and implementation of the program are done on a multi-party basis (Penta helix). Citizens as subjects supported by the village government, educational institutions, business institutions, and the media. University of Pembangunan Nasional Veteran Yogyakarta represents educational institutions, in which there are Disaster Management Study Program, Disaster Management Study Centers, Covid-19 Task Force, UPN TV, and Alumni Association.
