COVID-19 Response

When the pandemic began on March 17, 2020, Dumas Wesley’s most vulnerable populations had been disproportionately impacted. On March 17, Dumas Wesley began serving alongside the community on the front lines, providing essential programs and services to seniors, at-risk youth and homeless families.

Dumas Wesley appreciates the tremendous support shown by its community partners and volunteers in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

“I have been at home and trying to stay healthy. It’s been really hard not being able to see my friends at Dumas Wesley; I miss them. I look forward to my weekly food delivery because our driver, Darron, is always cheerful and asks how I’m doing. They’re doing a really good job delivering meals to the community. This Thanksgiving, I feel extra special because you make me feel like someone cares. I am thankful every single day.”
