Sheltering in Place is the best way to protect and care for our most vulnerable neighbors, and reduces potential stresses on health care resources. As of today, Saturday, May 2nd, 43 individuals have been warmly welcomed and settled into the hotel by CwD and Bethesda staff.
We are also grateful for our many partners. Samaritan Ministries' is providing three wonderful meals for guests each day. CwD's Volunteer Nurse Practitioner and a team of WFU Medical Students are checking in several times a times a week to assess overall health and encourage wellness. Mental health and addiction specialists are assisting with the necessary and practical resources needed to support individuals as they Shelter in Place. So many people dedicated to the care of our community.
This level of care would not be possible without the commitment of our city leaders and the advocacy of the Continuum of Care and The United Way.
