In this time, we wanted you to be informed on steps we have taken to protect the street youth and young adults, staff and volunteers, including:
- Following strict cleaning standards, including disinfecting high touch surfaces.
- Directing staff and volunteers to wash their hands regularly.
- Asking that staff and volunteers who are sick or in a high-risk category stay home.
As stated in our Mission Statement, “Sox Place exists to bring the Father’s heart to the fatherless, through physical, spiritual, emotional, and social provision to the street youth and young adult subcultures.” In times of crisis and uncertainty, we stand as a pillar for the street youth and young adults by the grace of God, for we can do no other.
Those we serve are at risk and are some of the least protected from exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Sox Place is on the front lines of this crisis and, while we rely on God the Father in serving the street youth and young adults (Ephesians 6:10), we require support to combat this problem as it appears it may persist for a protracted time period.
For those who have supported us with donations and volunteering, we thank you as these donations and your service as these have been a blessing to the street youth and young adults we serve. In the coming days and weeks, we anticipate there will be additional challenges and opportunities to serve the urban youth/young adults. Therefore, we ask that you prayerfully consider supporting Sox Place with your donations and volunteering.
