As more and more information has been shared through our public health agencies and government officials, it has has become apparent that the Refuge must suspend all operations until further notice. It kills me to make this decision and, if there were some other way, I would do everything to keep the Refuge open and operational. Even before the recent shelter in place directive, the 65 and older directive had already begun to decimate our pool of available volunteers to staff each shift.
Sending you back into the elements is unthinkable and, yet, here we are. It may feel like cold comfort, but we will continue to support you however we can during this very difficult time.
Please reach out to us with ways that we can help you, and we will do what we can to help you weather this public health crisis.
All contact information can easily be accessed at https://www.livermorehomelessrefuge.org/
As things change on the ground that allow us to be open again, we will mobilize and have things up and running in no time.
