Kanawha Valley Collective and Partners Open Second Location of Showers and Services
Charleston, WV... The Kanawha Valley Collective is partnering with the Roark Sullivan Lifeway Center, the United Way of Central WV and Cabin Creek Health Systems to bring a myriad of services to individuals in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A second set of showers are located at 1001 Smith Street in Charleston. In addition, a washer and dryer are available, screening for COVID-19 by Cabin Creek Health Systems and referrals for other community services. The center will initially be open Monday – Sunday from 8am – 4pm. Hours may adjust based on usage and need.
“We are grateful to the serve this population that has so little voice,” stated John Thompson of Roark Sullivan Lifeway Center. “RSLC is looking forward to this opportunity to serve the most vulnerable marginalized members of our community in a safe and responsible manner in the midst of this crisis.”
Safety is critical and recommended social distancing will be practiced. The number of individuals allowed in the building at one time will be limited. Kanawha Valley Collective Executive Director Traci Strickland stated, “We have had such a positive response to the showers we opened last week at the Salvation Army. People have expressed such gratitude. These services are obviously filling a need at this time.”
