The homeless are suffering and their numbers are growing exponentially. We are in the streets bringing aid in the form of food and shelter. With over 3,800 #CovidKindness meals served, we not only need to continue this to help serve them through the Delta Variant, but we need to also provide shelter for those who are forced to sleep on the ground, in doorways, and on benches.
We are approaching this problem from two directions, and we need your help to support it. EDAR stands for Everyone Deserves A Roof. EDAR is a mobile and secure shelter solution that is flame retardant, allows for storage of possessions, and affords a cozy and comfortable sleeping area that has escaped homeless men, women and children. We provide EDARs to churches, synagogues, mosques, homeless shelters and other areas that are close by needed services like showers, food delivery and bathroom facilities. EDAR comes assembled and ready to use.
In day mode, EDAR folds up into a cart and affords mobility. The homeless no longer have to worry that their belongings are stolen when they go to access services. EDAR goes with them.
EDAR is key in not only providing a secure and well ventilated place to sleep - it affords pride of ownership, mobility, a feeling of belonging, and an elevated sense of self-worth that comes from no longer having to sleep on the ground.
But wait - there's more. In every EDAR that we distribute, we add two bags of #CovidKindness that includes shelf-stable proteins, national brand vitamin and protein drinks, ready to eat carbs, candies and snacks, baked goods, fresh produce, and personal care items like toilet paper and masks.
It's a simple solution to a complex problem. While we work to provide permanent housing, we need to get the homeless fed and off of the ground. These are our fellow human beings. Will you please make a tax-deductible contribution? Thank you.
