2020 Annual Report
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” The pandemic created challenge and demanded transformational change, from serving the isolation center for the homeless to crisis mental health needs. Envida is grateful for funder and donor support to redefine what access means, and we emerged from the crisis stronger and more effective than before; we improved connecting people to community and services they need with a dedicated and compassionate staff. –Gail Nehls, CEO
Finding the best of times
When the community needed us, we were ready. Our vehicles now travel throughout all of El Paso and Teller counties and to outlying areas for physical and mental health needs and more.
FINDING THE BEST OF TIMES
COVID-19 hit assisted living and group living facilities especially hard, which meant Envida’s mission to promote independent living was critical. The safest place to be during the pandemic was at home, and Envida staff showed resolve and determination in facing the need to provide dependable, reliable, and compassionate care at home.
Homeless Isolation Shelter
Envida has been the sole transit agency to work with the city’s public-private effort to transport symptomatic or COVID-positive homeless to a safe place for care. To date, Envida has transported 393 people to care.
