COVID-19 RESPONSE EFFORTS
Our Team and Volunteers have stepped up as one of the local organizations working on the front lines to serve people experiencing homelessness during the current pandemic. We are providing volunteers to serve meals at the overflow shelter (approx 350 people per day, twice a day, 7 days per week)! We have set up an emergency clothing closet at the shelter, and are providing personal hygiene products, first aid items, linens, latex gloves, and prepackaged snacks for the shelter guests , thanks to our wonderful donors!
Due to the temporary ban on street feeding, we have set up a food/water station at our facility from 10:30am - 12:30pm daily to allow people living on the streets, unsheltered or in their cars to take advantage of our grab-n-go snacks and bottled water. We are also providing funds for family reunification to homeless people who have family in other cities/states that will allow them a place to stay. Our partner organizations are working hard to help us fill any gaps to make sure everyone has the basic necessities to survive this extended Shelter-in-Place Order.
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to help youth, single parent families and veterans who are experiencing homelessness, or are struggling to find their way. Together, we can make a difference!
