CAM and COVID-19

CAM has decided to keep its doors open to serve those less fortunate in the San Antonio community. So in the midst of everything going on we are prioritizing the following services: groceries for those in homes, daily sack lunches for our homeless friends, financial assistance for prescriptions.

We’re also still very much in need of certain items. The biggest need is funding. We need funds to buy certain things for our clients like groceries, hygiene items, baby items, etc. CAM is also working with the some of the larger organizations in town such as Haven for Hope, the SA Food Bank, the City of San Antonio to formalize process and information may change daily and weekly.

How is CAM Staying Safe?

Even though CAM is open and operating, we have a plan in place to mitigate any harm or fear to our staff and volunteers. We’ve taken the necessary precautions to ensure mass safety on our campus.

  • We have gloves, masks, hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes and other cleaning supplies to ensure our campus stays as clean as possible
  • We’re wiping down all door knobs, handles, tables, and all other surfaces with Clorox bleach every few hours
  • We’re only allowing 5-10 clients in the client building at a time to receive services
  • First Presbyterian Church has so graciously decided to fund 2 outdoor hand washing stations for our downtown campus; one of which will be right next to our porta-potties and the second will be placed at the ramp leading up to our client building. Clients will be asked to wash their hands before entering.
  • We’ve cancelled our daily Bible study to eliminate the gathering of too many people in a confined space
