COVID-19’s Impact on the People We Serve

  • At the English Learning Center, our distance learning program has launched! Students are engaged in online English and citizenship classes and 1:1 tutoring over the phone with weekly homework packets. Out of the 145 active students enrolled in classes pre-COVID-19, an astonishing 123 are able to continue learning with us.
  • At Our Saviour’s Housing, we proactively moved all of our shelter operations to a local hotel where guests can occupy separate rooms. Moving out of a congregate setting marks a huge step in keeping people without a home safe, while also roughly tripling our COVID-related operating costs. We are in critical need of additional resources to sustain this much safer model of service in the months ahead.

If you are in a position to give today, you will help offset the bulk of this impact. Thank you.
