SALT LAKE CITY – When the coronavirus pandemic hit Utah in March 2020, the employees and volunteers of Holy Cross Ministries stepped up their work, taking many of their efforts virtual.
“We never, throughout the entire year, curtailed services,” CEO Emmie Gardner said. “In fact, we grew services because the need became so great. So many more people were facing potential eviction and needed rental assistance. Folks were having issues accessing health care because they were getting sick with COVID or have family members with COVID, so our services actually grew throughout 2020.
