Mask Policy for Pillars Shelters and Resource Center

Updated June 24, 2021

Masks are required for all in common areas at Pillars Adult Shelter, Pillars Adult & Family Shelter and Pillars Resource Center. This helps keeps our clients, staff and volunteers safe, regardless of their vaccination status.

Volunteers who are vaccinated may remove their masks while working in the kitchen at either shelter. Volunteers must wear masks when serving food, interacting with clients, passing through shelter common areas and working at the front desk.

If you are wondering how you can help Pillars in this time of great need, please consider a financial donation. Such donations give us the most flexibility to respond to changing needs. If you wish to make a gift, please go to or mail to:

It has remained our focus throughout the COVID-19 crisis. And we couldn’t deliver our mission without you! As always, you have our deepest gratitude for your support.
