Situational Homelessness and COVID-19
Updated: Aug 16, 2021
The COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak has been trying for everyone, but it has been particularly difficult for families experiencing situational homelessness.
Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb is working to protect our guests, staff members and volunteers without reducing our efforts to provide temporary assistance, hospitality and case management for families with children experiencing homelessness. We remain committed to finding a stable place for families to stay, so they aren’t relocating weekly.
The Family Day Center is operating as usual with space for both adults and children. However, we have made a few changes to our protocol. We are minimizing the number of volunteers interacting with the families at this time, and we are asking families to limit their movement.
Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb has seen no suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution, we have implemented proactive measures to combat its spread, including a multi-point prevention plan that calls for enhanced cleaning of our facilities and protocols should a guest, staff member or volunteer exhibit symptoms.
We appreciate the community’s continued support to help us carry out our mission.
