Due to potential COVID exposure and out of an abundance of caution, we are ceasing shelter operations for the next 14 days. During that time, the shelter will be professionally cleaned and disinfected and no one will be allowed to enter the building. In making this decision, we consulted with the St. Louis City homeless COVID team, which includes a doctor from Wash U.
Current shelter residents will be placed in temporary accommodations during this time, and staff will continue to provide case management and support services remotely. Our crisis line will go straight to voicemail and will provide important referral information.
This is not a decision we came to lightly, and one that was made with input from experts to prioritize the health and safety of our residents, staff, and community.
In these uncertain times, we wish you all continued good health.
