(ATW) provides Emergency Shelter and supportive services to women and children who are experiencing a homeless episode during the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 is creating a health and economic crisis in the City of Detroit and throughout the world. ATW is committed to providing safe and healthy accommodations that would allow for social distancing, quarantine, and isolation for people who are typically in crowded shelter settings or living unsheltered.
During this current pandemic, there is a new challenge—the number of people who contract an infectious illness (COVID-19) while needing homeless services. Self-quarantine, social isolation, and stay-at-home orders are difficult, if not impossible, to follow when you do not have a home.
ATW will provide rooms for women with or without COVID-19 who were discharged from hospitals, are homeless, women fleeing domestic violence or experiencing housing instability due to COVID-19. Our twenty-bed facility will provide temporary and emergency shelter to include daily meals, case management and supportive services.
