    With the NC stay-at-home orders, Thompson leadership looked at a building on our residential campus as an opportunity to help our ACP families do just that, stay at ‘home.’ Turning an otherwise, unused building into a temporary shelter was an undertaking that had not previously been done, but was realized with community support.

     

    As the first ACP families moved into the shelter in May, a sense of stabilization was felt. The families can now focus on their children’s distance learning, job searches, self-sufficiency skill building, and ultimately work on the plan to exit into their own housing.
