Having reopened the campus to new residents in September, our occupancy has been increasing and our goal is to reach 80 by year end. New residents continue to be placed in 14 days of quarantine upon arrival, unless a current negative COVID 19 test result is presented. Current residents are enjoying some much-needed freedom to leave the campus for approved trips. All staff working remotely have returned, and now work most of their time at the campus.
Volunteers have returned to the kitchen and are providing, preparing, and serving meals. Additionally, they are helping with Chapel services and our food distribution ministry to the neighborhood. Our Thanksgiving give out to the community went well as 350 families benefited. Many of our volunteers unable to serve in their normal capacity switched gears and now look for opportunities to provide in-kind needs. It is amazing to witness how quickly our posted needs get met. Tours are now being allowed under certain circumstances, and we are hoping to have all volunteers back next year by the end of the first quarter.
We have adjusted well to our new virtual environment and are grateful for having implemented recent technological upgrades that supported zoom meetings, virtual classes and learning, remote access, and improved security. During these slower times with fewer residents on campus we have been able to complete many projects that improved the living conditions of our residents.
We are extremely grateful for God’s continued protection, provision, and guidance. Fortunately, none of our staff or residents have the virus.
Please continue to lift us up in prayer.
