BEND, OR -- The COVID pandemic has created a lot of challenges at shelters for individuals and families struggling with housing and other issues. The Executive Director of the Bethlehem Inn, Gwen Wysling says they have not had anyone get sick even though many residents are classified as essential workers. She says as a high barrier shelter, the Inn requires drug and alcohol testing to provide a safe environment for those who live there. Wysling says they have also extended stays at Bethlehem Inn because with so many people moving to the region, the availability of affordable housing remains in short supply.
