Having a safe place to call home is not a new idea at Anawim Housing. We have been committed to serving people experiencing homelessness through permanent supportive housing for over 20 years. In the coming days and weeks as our community is increasingly affected by the COVID-19 virus, we believe everyone will place a higher value on the importance of having a safe place to shelter, nest and create new routines.
New office procedures in place during COVID-19:
Anawim Housing has shorted our office hours, restricted public access, and postponed upcoming events.
Staff have been working remotely as much as possible. We're using technology and phones to stay in close contact with permanent supportive housing residents, landlords, and Anawim staff. We remain committed as a staff to providing ongoing support and communication through this pandemic.
Want to help?
Here are some ways that you can help our residents through this current situation and beyond:
- For the time being, we are still accepting donations of high need items such as toilet paper to our main office. Donations can be brought to the office between the hours of 9 am – 3 pm. As we continue to practice social distancing, you will need to call the number listed on our front door and a staff member will meet you to pick up items.
- Make a financial donation to Anawim Housing which will help our team as we work to obtain high need items for our residents such as toilet paper, soap, trash bags, etc.
- Follow us on Facebook to stay current of any immediate needs or information we are sharing with the public as information is changing each day.
