ABOUT COVID-19 Response Fund

 

Dear Friends and Supporters,

How do you quarantine at home when you have no home?  This is the question all of us at SOS are facing every day.  COVID-19 and its impact on people experiencing homelessness is a dire and evolving situation and we need your help.

We know you care as much as we do about keeping everyone in our community safe. Our shelters are close to capacity and we are doing everything humanly possible to comply with distance and good hygiene practices. As such, Shelters of Saratoga has initiated a rapid response plan for this crisis and WE NEED YOUR HELP to protect all community members.

We are asking the community to step forward and help us raise $150,000 by April 15, 2020 so that we can:

  • purchase cleaning supplies, hand soap and hand sanitizer

  • outfit 8 motel rooms for proper social distancing of non-symptomatic individuals

  • outfit the newly leased Saratoga Senior Center with cleaning supplies and protective gear, which are vital to creating a hygienic environment to lessen the spread of the virus if one of our guests or staff become ill

  • keep front line staff who are working extra hours and extra hard safe and paid during this crisis

  • increase our access to increasingly scarce food sources through bulk purchases

AS COVID-19 continues to bring uncertainty and unrest to many around the globe, our community is responding with love and compassion.  We desperately need the resources to continue providing food and shelter to our most vulnerable neighbors. Our doors MUST remain open. This is not a choice. We need your help now more than ever.

Will you help us save lives right now?

Thank you so much for your support.

Karen A. Gregory
Executive Director
Shelters of Saratoga

Thank you to our corporate and foundation partners
