Unhoused Families Have Place to Shelter

Date: Friday, May 8 2020
First Place Annex Rises to COVID-19 Challenge
 The COVID-19 emergency prompted St. Vincent de Paul's Night Shelter Annex to go full-time so 19 unhoused families could shelter-in-place 24-7, homeschool and utilize tutors, and meet their daily needs while adhering to CDC recommendations for social distancing and cloth masks.
In March & April at the Annex: 5,400 meals served, 480 loads of
laundry washed and dried, 70 hygiene kits distributed.
Heavy-duty doors open to a welcoming place to dine, tackle homework, and play. Above and below, as a result of recent rennovations, light in the indoor common areas is enhanced by skylights.

Spacious grounds lend to family distancing and lots of ourdoor play. The colorful childcare room has tutors in the morning and Kids Club in the afternoon.

Restrooms and showers are sanitized between uses. To limit exposure, families bring their laundry to the door, and it's handled and returned by staff members.
