COVID-19 UPDATE March 25, 2020

KentHOPE staff and guests are working diligently to follow guidelines from the CDC and Health Department.  Our weekly visiting nurse has helped with suggestions that were implemented right away. By strictly following the guidelines, we hope to remain free of COVID-19 and stay open to serve our guests who are a potentially higher community risk. 
We are no longer taking new intakes. Guests continue to find housing, so we are currently serving just 16 guests.  Guests are sheltering in place, day and night at KentHOPE to reduce exposure by going to host church locations.
We are following a strict sanitizing schedule, taking temperatures of guests and staff throughout the day, monitoring supplies and researching housing options. If someone does become ill, we have a plan for health care, testing and quarantine placement. Our guests and staff continue to support and encourage each other.
Thanks for your continued support in this time of rapidly changing information and circumstances. We still depend on volunteers to prepare and deliver meals for our staff to serve. Sign up for a meal of your choice on the Volunteer tab. Also check out our Donations of Day-to-Day Needs tab to purchase and drop off (or have Amazon deliver) much needed items. We appreciate your prayers that KentHOPE guests and staff will remain healthy and safe.
