(VIDEO): Homeless Shelters & the Coronavirus

by Keeton Yescott March 23, 2020

As COVID-19 has continued to spread rapidly throughout our country, we can't help but think about the ways that our partnered homeless shelter's are being affected. We went behind the scenes with our shelter of the month, Fairbanks Rescue Mission, to get some insight into this.
Watch the video below.


THINGS TO KNOW

- Many shelters are running low on resources.

- Many shelters are at max capacity, or will be there soon.

- Homeless shelters don't have the option to close their doors; they must continue to feed people and provide shelter. The result would be otherwise detrimental.

THINGS TO DO

- Call your local shelter and ask them their most needed resources. This will be different depending on the shelter and could be anything from food, to water, to blankets, to socks.

- Go out of your way to look at the homeless people in the eyes and smile or say "hi" if you do walk by someone on the street.

- Continue to pray for not only the medical professionals, grocery store workers, and others who are on the front lines of this; but also the homeless shelter staff and volunteers.

Thank you to all who are even interested in knowing how the homeless community / shelters are doing during this time. We know that there are so many unknowns and so many people being affected by this, well beyond the homeless community. For those who are able to help anyone in any capacity, we know that help would be so appreciated. We hope we can encourage you all to continue doing good through this, even in the littlest ways.

With love,

The Sky Team
