People living on the streets are among the most vulnerable during this pandemic threat when all preventative measures require the very things they likely cannot do: stay at home and practice proper hygiene. Emergency housing and support are necessary to manage the spread of COVID 19.Additionally, the struggle for the community’s homeless to access food, water, and respite will become much more challenging in weeks and months ahead.
