Open Your Heart provided funding to St. Andrew’s Community Resource Center to help provide an extended stay hotel as a temporary shelter solution for families experiencing homelessness to practice social distancing from the others in a congregate setting.
In 2011, the St. Andrew’s Community Resource Center was launched with a mission of providing help, hope, and healing for neighbors in need, with a primary focus on ending homelessness in their area. They do this through an innovative, no cost, comprehensive program combining emergency housing, professional case work, mentoring and coaching, and generally eliminating barriers to stability. Since inception, the St. Andrew’s Community Resource Center has helped over 3,000 families in need, including helping over 550 families transition from homelessness. Thank you St. Andrew’s Community Resource Center for all that you do for families experiencing homelessness!
