COVID19 SAFETY AND PRECAUTION

Go Connect is actively doing what we can do to protect our volunteers and guests.  At this stage, all of our church partners have decided to keep their parking lots open 24/7 during the COVID19 crisis.  We have also added multiple handwashing stations throughout our locations.  All guests have access to these resources.  There are also 3 more churches that are offering the service during this ‘isolation’ time.  The bummer is that our guests live in their cars. So how to do stay in?  They have to stay in their car.

We do have additional expenses during this crisis.

How do people who live in their car shelter in place?
That’s a great question and I can tell you that many of our churches have, without our encouragement, open their parking lots to their guests full-time during this crisis.  We are so grateful for their loving hearts.

Are guests able to social distance in a parking lot?
We have made suggestions to only stand within 10 feet fo those they are not living with.  We encourage walking at local parks for exercise.

What other measures are you taking for guests during this time?
One of the biggest measures we are taking is with regard to the porta-potty.  We encourage guests to wash their hands at the handwashing station before and after entering the unit.  We believe this will ensure better control over germs.

Our Programs

It is estimated that in every school district across the country, for every 10,000 students there are 20 families who have no other choice, but to sleep in their cars.  That means there are about 65,000 families living in transition waiting for a permanent place to stay.

Churches are the only place to park legally for over 2 weeks.  Our systems make it possible for churches to offer this kind of service to their communities.

We help churches address poverty in healthy ways. Pastor, do you feel your church is stuck in a rut? We can help.
