BEDS COVID-19 UPDATE JUNE 17. 2020
Thank you for your continued support of BEDS clients. After 4 months of isolation and shelter lockdown BEDS is moving our vulnerable clients into a new phase along state and CDC guidelines. We have moved clients into housing , motels and we are continuing to protect and support them during this time.
Our shelters clients have now moved into motel settings with the support of BEDS-Plus. We will continue to support them with case management and supplement with a minimum of one meal a day.
This has increased our meal needs from 40 families and individuals to 65.
Therefore we are adding the opportunity to volunteer and donate an additional meal team and/or shelf stable meals per day in addition to our regular meal teams.
