Martha’s Village & Kitchen of Indio California

Blog Post: The Sanitizer Company’s visit to Martha’s Village & Kitchen on Friday, August 14, 2020.

Martha’s Village & Kitchen is one of the largest providers of homeless services in the Coachella Valley and Riverside County.

The organization began in 1990 when the founders served meals to their homeless neighbors. Today, from its campus in Indio, CA, Martha’s Village offers unique life-changing programs based on the nationally-recognized “continuum of care model” breaking the cycle of homelessness.

Through this gateway to hope, people regain their lives becoming responsible, self-sufficient and productive citizens while passing on their newfound independence and life skills to their children and families. Changing one person’s life, changes generations of lives.

The Sanitizer Company has chosen Martha’s Village & Kitchen as our recipient for liquid sanitizer donations in an effort to help Kill COVID-19 in the Coachella Valley! Donating liquid sanitizer to the homeless is just one way we will help.

Martha’s Village & Kitchen receives sizable donations of Toprosan™ Sanitizer 75% Alcohol Liquid Spray Bottle 4 oz.

More About Our Homeless

According to researchers, the corona virus is spreading under the radar in the homeless population due to close living quarters and lack of testing. Assisting the homeless of the Coachella Valley is one step The Sanitizer Company is taking to help control the pandemic. We are a small start-up, and we are committed to making a difference in our neighborhood!

The Desert Sun reported in April 2018:
“Riverside County as of 2018, there were 1,685 homeless. According to the 2018 point-in-time count conducted by Riverside County, 438 people were experiencing homelessness in the Coachella Valley during a single night that January. According to the Riverside County’s 2019 point-in-time count, the homeless population in Palm Springs grew from 126 people in 2018 to 196 in 2019.”

The CDC states:
“Some people who are experiencing unsheltered homelessness may be at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 due to older age or certain underlying medical conditions, such as chronic lung disease or serious heart conditions.” (cdc.gov)

Coalition for the Homeless states:
“As the new corona virus (the pathogen that causes COVID-19) began to spread across New York City, it soon became clear that the legacy of systemic oppression and inequality had placed some New Yorkers at far greater risk of contracting and succumbing to the virus. People of color, and particularly those who are low-income or homeless, have been disproportionately affected by the deadly pandemic.” (coalitionforthehomeless.org)

Homelessness Research Institute states:
“People experiencing homelessness uniquely vulnerable to COVID-19 and could greatly increase homelessness. These factors should inform a broad range of policies and practices for the foreseeable future.” (endhomelessness.org)

Nature.com states:
“Corona virus is spreading under the radar in US homeless shelters. Close living quarters and a lack of testing among homeless people across the United States threaten the nation’s ability to control the pandemic, researchers say.” (nature.com)
