Corona Virus Update
At Jacob’s Well as an essential service provider has remained opened during this time to ensure that our residents have access to food, cleaning supplies, toiletries, hand sanitizer, gloves and masks (when we can get them) and the peace of mind to know that they are not alone. We as a society often forget that forced isolation can be just as unhealthy as a physical illness. Our staff members reach out daily to all of our residents to ensure that they are safe, well and stable.
Of course we have taken steps to try (as best anyone can) to prevent the spread of the virus while at the same time providing for the residents. Only one resident is allowed to use the laundry room at a time, all who enter the office must use the hand sanitizer at the door and we are constantly disinfecting all surfaces several times a day. Another change has been to our monthly dinners. They have continued but as take-out meals. We give special thanks to our volunteers who provide, prepare and help to serve at our monthly dinners. It means a great deal to or residents to know that they are not forgotten but are loved and cared for during these times.

Our 2019 fundraiser is tentatively scheduled for Friday, October 2. We are repeating last year’s highly successful variety show/dinner combination, which featured singer Barrett Johnson, a capella group Faux Paz, the Kernan Sisters and the Harbor City Daydreamers barbershop quartet.
We are anxiously watching to see whether COVID-19 will affect our plans. Stay tuned.
