Loving homeless moms and babies in the Lehigh Valley by providing housing, counseling, and education leading to a life of self-reliance.
Dear Donors, Volunteers and Clients,
As organizations, communities and individuals around the world consider ways to help limit the spread and impact of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Cay Galgon Life House wants you to know what we’re doing to protect our residents, volunteers and employees.
First, we encourage you — along with all our residents, volunteers and staff — to learn how to protect yourself and prepare for the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Review and practice the steps on how to prepare for the spread of COVID-19 (right). Stay up-to-date with news and announcements by checking the PA Government Department of Health, World Health Organization (WHO), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) websites (links at right).
Second, we will not be accepting “in-kind” donations due to the current situation and our pending construction project scheduled for early April. We need to limit the exposure of the virus to our mothers, newborns, volunteers and staff members. We will start accepting
“in-kind” donations as of May 1, unless the coronavirus situation worsens. Please check our social media pages for updates.
Third, our Community Outreach Program will be CLOSED until the week of April 20 due to COVID-19 and our pending construction project.
Fourth, we’ve reinforced with our residents, volunteers and staff the enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures to ensure our living/working environment is as sanitary as possible.
We will continue to monitor this developing situation and heed direction provided by the CDC, the state Department of Health and other public health and administration officials.
Finally, take care of yourselves and heed these simple steps to help prevent further spread of coronavirus (COVID-19):
Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
Cover any coughs or sneezes with your elbow, not your hands.
Clean surfaces frequently, such as countertops, light switches, cell phones and other frequently touched areas.
If you are sick, stay home and practice social distancing until you are feeling better.
