COVID-19 started off difficult as we were limited to online communication only. Especially our homeless community struggled to find meals because of the restrictions early on. However, we were able to quickly adapt to our restrictions. We were able to provide internet access, showers, hot meals, clothing, assist with job applications, stable housing along with many more services.
We were able to start our tattoo removal program which helped people who would have otherwise never been eligible for certain careers. Our emergency shelter started during COVID and was a complete success because everyone of our temporary residents moved on and found stable jobs. One of our success stories was a homeless woman who came into to eat everyday, shower, use our computers, and was unable to find a job because she is disabled. Our program was able to connect with another allowing her to find a permanent residence. Her life has totally changed in every aspect. She is completely independent and is very excited for what is yet to come.
