CAM and COVID-19

CAM has decided to keep its doors open to serve those less fortunate in the San Antonio community.

Please note that if you are driving in, have a home etc. we serve our homeless friends with food from 9 am to 10 am and we need you to arrive at 10 am when our gates are open and our sack lunch food distribution is over. In the midst of everything going on, we are prioritizing the following services at our downtown location. *Our Northwest Campus is open Mon-Thurs 9 am – 1 pm.

Homeless [Downtown]

  • Sack lunches for our homeless friends – Mon – Sat [9 am – 11 am]
  • Homeless Showers – Mon, Wed, and Sat [930 am –1130 am]
  • Homeless Hygiene Kits – Given During Showers and Once a Month w/ Clothing
  • Mail Service Monday through Thursday [9, 12, 3] and Friday [9 am]
  • ID and Out of State Birth Certificates – Friday [930 am – 1130 am]

Individuals/Families with a Home/Proof of Residence [Downtown]

We’re also still very much in need of certain items, but the biggest need is funding. We need funds to buy certain items for our clients such as groceries, hygiene items, baby items, etc. CAM is also working with some of the larger organizations in town such as Haven for Hope, the SA Food Bank, and the City of San Antonio to formalize a strategic process during COVID-19. Information may change daily/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 are providing all services outside while instilling the social distancing rule of 6ft or more
  • 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
