CAM has seen an uptick in helping the unsheltered street homeless over the past few years. When the pandemic hit, and most of the city shut down, this population had no where to go. They had no where to use the restroom, no where to find respite, no where to wash their hands, no where to get a meal. But CAM stepped up; we stayed open during the entire duration of the pandemic, and not only that, we extended our hours to 6 days a week providing tons of resources to both the street homeless and residential clients. Resources such as daily sack lunches, groceries, IDs, birth certificates, financial help with medical prescriptions and utilities, portable restrooms on our campus, wash stations on our campus so people could wash their hands, hygiene items, showers, and so much more. Our world has changed so much since covid-19. CAM has also changed so much in terms of our processes and services to accommodate those in need in the city of San Antonio. Many ask us how they should handle someone on the streets who approaches them. Or they ask us what to do if they see someone on the side of the road with a sign asking for help. This one page document provides some helpful tips on what you should do.
Our CAM’s Corner campaign has launched and is in full swing! How many of you have family members, close friends you consider family, co-workers, etc. that you feel are in “your corner”? You know what we mean. When someone says, “I’m in your corner”, it means they have your back – they support you no matter what – they love you – they’ll fight for you. That’s exactly what we had in mind with our CAM’s Corner campaign! We want to encourage others to be in CAM’s Corner because essentially it means you support the people we serve on a daily basis. The premise is that you may not be able to give “big”, but “small” gifts make BIG impacts. We put some of these words in quotations because they’re subjective. What may be big or small for one person may be the complete opposite for someone else. We encourage you to be in CAM’s Corner and become a monthly supporters. Giving $5, $10, $15, etc. monthly can make a huge difference for CAM because it will allow us to continue serving the San Antonio community on a daily basis.
