THE CORNERSTONE OF BEAVER COUNTY RAMPS UP EFFORTS 

TO HOUSE COUNTY’S HOMELESS AMID COVID-19 OUTBREAK

We are working tirelessly to secure housing for the county’s homeless individuals and families amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

People living on the streets are among the most vulnerable during this pandemic threat when all preventative measures require the very things they likely cannot do: stay at home and practice proper hygiene.  Emergency housing and support are necessary to manage the spread of COVID 19. Additionally, the struggle for the community’s homeless to access food, water, and respite will become much more challenging in weeks and months ahead.

We offer the following updates:

Office Hours and Appointments

TCBC offices, located at 602 Sixth Street in Beaver Falls, will remain open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. However, walk-ins can no longer be accepted. All clients and visitors must call 724-846-6400 to make an appointment. 

Service Changes

During this state of emergency, we will focus TCBC resources on the following services that meet the immediate emergency needs of those who are homeless and help protect the community:

  • Emergency shelter – TCBC is making every effort to collaborate with local hotels, officials, partners, and sponsors to secure immediate shelter options for homeless individuals and families currently living on the streets. Funds are needed to support this effort.
  • Emergency Support – TCBC remains committed to meeting the urgent, critical needs of the county’s homeless such as but not limited to: transportation; food; hygiene; etc.. Emergency needs will continue to reveal themselves in the weeks and months to come. Funds are needed to support these efforts.

 

All other services provided by TCBC remain in operation with limited face to face contact as directed by Federal, State, and local guidelines.
