We're halfway through the year and grateful for the way God is using our partner churches to bless the Cedar Valley through Love INC! Our numbers have decreased across the board compared to the first half of 2019, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have experienced a lower call volume over the last few months, which we attribute to the government crisis services that have stepped in to help vulnerable populations during this time. Additionally, we had to limit some of our services in order to keep our volunteers and clients safe. These factors contribute to fewer identified and met needs overall (though we definitely saw an increased need for particular items like food, household essentials, and cleaning supplies).
While we have not met as many needs in the first part of the year, we know this pandemic will create longer-term issues for our population in need. Government crisis services are starting to expire and we will likely see increased needs in our community. We are committed to keeping our services consistent as individuals continue on the long journey toward stability!
