Elijah's Retreat, ER, has experienced several noteworthy changes due to COVID-19. In an attempt to keep costs low, we primarily operate on volunteers and due to COVID-19 we had to cancel all volunteers for 4 months and are just beginning to work with routine volunteers again. Elijah's Retreat was notified in 2020 that previous funders were delaying funding which significantly impacted operating costs. We also had an increase in demand from families facing autism due to virtual learning and families needing respite and a safe place to allow their children to run. Due to the higher demand, lack of volunteers and less funds we had to pivot.
