DCMH CONTINUING SERVICES TO THE COMMUNITY DURING COVID-19 EMERGENCY

Providing food, housing and services to many of the most vulnerable in our community has been our mission since 1991. It continues to be our mission today.

We are continuing our meals program at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:45 pm and our lunch on Saturday at 11:30 am. In compliance with state and local guidelines, we have suspended our sit down eating service and are now preparing and handing out bagged sandwiches and other food items for take away.

All of our housing programs are continuing. Our weekday resource center is still operating from 8 am to 12 noon Monday to Friday. Staff availability during the afternoon is limited at this time.

We have had no reported cases of Covid-19 by any of our volunteers, guests and staff. We are being extremely vigilant in following all CDC guidelines and guidance from multiple sources on best practices to combat the spread of this disease. We request that all volunteers who are deemed to be in a vulnerable class of individuals or for any other reason to stop volunteering at this time. Your health and safety is very important to us!!

We want to thank all for your continuing support and donations. With your help we can continue to provide to the individuals and families in our community.
