HOLY CROSS HEROES LIVESTREAM
To honor the heroic efforts of our staff, interns and volunteers over this past pandemic year, Holy Cross Ministries (HCM) celebrated these incredible individuals through a Holy Cross Heroes Livestream on May 19th.
Our Holy Cross heroes played an integral role in Utah’s coronavirus response:
- HCM served 2,904 individuals in 2020 – 85% were immigrants, 74% were uninsured and 50% were living in poverty.
- HCM staff provided 4,318 resource referrals in 2020 — a nearly 80% increase since 2019.
- HCM therapists worked diligently to meet unprecedented mental health needs, providing trauma-informed care to 250 individuals – a nearly 95% increase compared to 2019.
- HCM community health workers provided direct services to hundreds of individuals in communities with high rates of COVID infection.
- 77 HCM volunteers donated 1,877 hours of their time to supporting the organization — a nearly 30% increase in volunteer time compared to 2019.
- HCM’s early childhood education and immigration programs smoothly transitioned to virtual platforms, delivering the families we serve the same high-quality assistance.
