COVID-19 Update from your Promise House family
Youth homelessness doesn’t stop – so we can’t either
Homeless youth need our help right now, more than ever. In this time of extreme uncertainty we are their constants and our commitment to meet their needs is unwavering. We know that the young people we serve are especially vulnerable given that they lack resources necessary for adequate healthcare and housing. Every day, Promise House leads the way in providing youth in our community access to the most basic needs – shelter, nourishment and access to healthcare. We will continue to provide compassionate care and meet the needs of the youth in our shelters.
Promise House is continuing to closely monitor the current state of affairs regarding COVID-19 across the nation and the implications in our local community. We are taking all measures necessary to safeguard the health and safety of our staff and youth in care working out detailed policies and procedures for how we will handle a quarantine (both of a single individual and for an entire facility).
As you will seek shelter and protection for your family, we will protect and represent our youth. We are their voice. We are their home. We are their family. During this time of uncertainty, we anticipate increased needs and a spike in requests for our services. Because of our generous supporters, we will be ready to answer the call.
