During this national health crisis, the MKOC mission of rendering assistance, care and comfort to members of the Denton County community who are experiencing homelessness is more important than ever. In light of this, we are making procedural changes to further protect our clients. MKOC will shelter 24/7 a limited number of our clients to allow for social distancing. We are extremely grateful to the City of Denton who will shelter the remaining clients in hotel rooms. We are also thankful Our Daily Bread will be transporting meals to our clients along with City volunteers. MKOC staff will be available to our clients sheltered offsite for various needs.
