GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Homeward Bound of The Grand Valley, which helps those who are homeless, just received a $25,000 grant from the state.

These grants are aimed at helping nonprofits do their jobs effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At Homeward Bound, these funds were used for equipment like high-powered sanitizers and a brand new tent to house make-shift medical beds should Homeward Bound face an influx of those with COVID-19 symptoms.

“It’s a 24 by 60 canopy, and there are medical isolation pods that go inside of it so that we can have facilities for up to 12 people that might be showing symptoms. We need a safe place for them to be.” – Greg Moore, Homeward Bound

About 10 other nonprofits and agencies in the Grand Valley received similar grants from the state.
