Host MaryAnn Digman and Nicole Martinez, the Executive Director of the Mesilla Valley Community of Hope, Abode, Inc. discuss how the COVID 19 Pandemic is affecting our homeless and near homeless neighbors. The breadth of services that are available through the Mesilla Valley Community of Hope as well as the precautions that are being taken to protect our vulnerable homeless population are explained. Under Nicole’s leadership, many changes have been made in the way services are being provided to protect the clients, staff and volunteers. Nicole outlined the contingency plans to be implemented should someone in Camp Hope or otherwise homeless become positive for COVID 19. Nicole’s messages for our community are that there are services available for those who may need temporary rent/utility assistance and that it is ultimately better for all concerned for people to have a safe and protective place to live. Donations can me made on the website for Mesilla Valley Community of Hope and TentstoRents.org.
