In light of the public health crisis caused by COVID-19, the shared vulnerable clients of CLASI, DVLS, People’s Place, and Child Inc. are in need. Throughout the public health crisis, our partners at both Child Inc. and People’s Place continue to offer critical shelter services to survivors of domestic violence and low-income individuals. They need your help to keep the operation of the shelters safe and healthy for those living and working in the shelters, and those continuing to provide services via critical agency programs.
Both agencies have a need to purchase or receive the items below, in order to keep the shelter residents and staff safe:
- Disposable gloves
- Disposable masks
