On March 19, Governor Newsom issued a stay at home order for the State of California. During this time, everyone is required to remain inside except to get food, necessary health care, or go to an essential job. Like healthcare and emergency services, the services provided by PATH have been deemed essential and our work in the community will continue.
While the rest of California stays at home, many of our homeless neighbors don’t have anywhere to turn. PATH will remain on the front lines to help our most vulnerable. Many of those living on the streets are older, sick, or have underlying health issues. Our homeless neighbors are among those most at risk of COVID-19. Now more than ever PATH’s work is saving lives.
PATH serves over 20% of the homeless population in California, through nine interim housing shelters, 14 supportive housing communities, and dozens of outreach teams hitting the streets each day. All of these services will continue through the COVID-19 crisis.
It has never been more important for us to meet the critical needs of those we serve, and keep those in our care safe and healthy. As we continue our work in the community, we need your help.
Please donate to the PATH Cares COVID-19 Fund today to help ensure we can continue to provide life-saving services for those living without a home.
While our teams continue to work for our unhoused neighbors, we still believe that everyone should stay home for the sake of our community. Now more than ever, community is so important—we’re thankful to have your support.
