COVID-19 and People Experiencing Homelessness

Resources and Guidance

Our COVID-19 Commitment

People experiencing homelessness are particularly vulnerable in the COVID-19 pandemic, and the NHCHC is creating resources and collecting guidance to help meet their needs during this evolving crisis.

The COVID-19 pandemic is evolving quickly, and new resources are emerging daily. This regularly updated page features key guidance and resources from the NHCHC, our partners, federal agencies, and frontline providers from the Health Care for the Homeless community.

Resources are listed by topic. Can’t find what you’re looking for, have something to share with us, or need technical assistance? Contact Technical Assistance Manager Michael Durham. For press inquiries, contact Terri Woodmore, Communications Manager.
