Mary Baldwin University (MBU) today announced an agreement with the Valley Mission to house approximately 30 of the agency’s family and senior clients during the COVID-19 pandemic in Tullidge Residence Hall on the MBU campus. The move will create much needed space for implementing social distancing and isolation guidelines among the Mission’s clients currently housed at the agency’s shelter in Staunton. The arrangement was facilitated with support from the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge.
“In times of crisis, it is essential that we band together to care for every valued member of our tight-knit community. Mary Baldwin is committed during this pandemic to providing shelter and opportunity for the Valley Mission’s clients, and we are proud to be a part of this creative solution to a community challenge,” said MBU President Pamela R. Fox.
