Life as we knew it has drastically changed for all of us. It seems each new day brings more uncertainty. But despite the challenges posed by the Coronavirus pandemic, the Christian Aid Center is still here serving some of the most vulnerable members of our community—people experiencing homelessness, hunger and need.
Because of this crisis, we’ve had to make a lot of changes to protect the health and safety of our guests; such as keeping them on campus 24 hours-a-day and screening them daily for COVID-19 symptom. These efforts, in turn, also protect the health of our community and have established CAC as an “essential” service.
To follow appropriate physical distancing, we closed our community dining room and now provide meals in a “grab-and-go” format for our guests and for anyone in our community in need of food. These changes bring additional costs, and that’s why the support of our community is so appreciated and needed more than ever before.
