HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Many of you are feeling the impact of the current crisis caused by Covid-19. We see the disruption it has caused for the families of staff, volunteers and the impact it is having on our homeless brothers and sisters. As you are preparing to wait out this storm, we ask that you remember community. Teams are working tirelessly to provide support and housing to the men, women and children without shelter in our community.
