We have temporarily
suspended a few programs.
We value the health of all of our Cabarrus County neighbors! This is why we've temporarily suspended a few programs that typically function with high
social interaction. However, we know and understand that the need is still great and the challenge to fulfill it has become more imperative. Our pastor Jim Hood said it best, "A stay at home order is most difficult for those who do not have a home." And we agree. So, we've made some adjustments for the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff.
Here's what we've done.
Due to the mandate by the State of North Carolina, we are no longer allowing individuals inside the facility without masks. Not to worry, we have a surplus of masks and are offering them at the door upon entry.
Temperatures are taken at the door for all persons seeking entry, staff included. For the safety of all parties, anyone who has an abnormal temperature will not be permitted into the facility. If this happens to occur for a potential guest, access to many of our essential services are not granted. However, chef prepared take out meals are still being prepared and provided to ensure no one goes hungry for the day.
We are limiting access to the facility and releasing guests immediately after breakfast & lunch to conduct a thorough cleaning. All common areas are being cleaned with bleach and government approved cleaning agents to minimize the risk of spreading the virus.
Chef prepared take out lunches are being provided from 12 - 12:15pm on Thursdays. This means, anyone can come to Opportunity House, drive around the back of the building, and request a lunch. No questions asked. We know that things are a little hectic right now and until they get back in form, our take out lunches will be available.
Emergency Street Food will be available as long as we're here. We provide many nonperishables and snacks like chips, crackers, granola bars, pop top canned meals (Chef Boyardee, Campell's), and bottled waters.
Our Narrow Gate Ministry (at both campuses) has been temporarily suspended. We understand that it is a high volunteer avenue and we miss each one of you. However, we've also implemented safety protocols that will ensure the integrity of the program and each of its participants. We'd like to thank our wonderful volunteers for your hard work and we appreciate your patience while we navigate these uncharted waters.
Because we are grateful for your support and understand that the need is still great, a select few of our volunteer opportunities for individuals remain operational. For more information, please contact us at (704) 786-4020.
