Amid the growing concern of the COVID-19 virus, we wanted to keep our supporters informed of the measures our team is taking to ensure the safety of the families we serve, including those residing in our emergency safe shelter.

We have begun implementing best practice protocols and procedures for emergency shelters which ensure the safety of our residents and staff. Additionally, we are receiving regular updates from the Division of Victim Services within the Michigan Department of Health and Human services and through the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force on Health and Human Services. We are also working to protect our staff members and volunteers that fall into the high-risk category of COVID-19.

The following are steps we are taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of survivors and our team:

  • Designated an area in our emergency shelter for isolation purposes
  • Increased capacity for those needing safe shelter
  • Ample signage on symptoms and preventative measures
  • Minimizing exposure for at-risk shelter employees
  • Implementing additional cleaning measures
  • Reassuring survivors that they will still have a safe place to go should they contract COVID-19
