New Healing Hands Explores How HCH Providers Are Adapting Care Practices During COVID-19
People experiencing homelessness are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19, and many have preexisting health conditions as a result of the intersections of race, age, class, and access to health care and services. Moreover, people who spend time in congregate settings like shelters, clinics, and public transportation may find it difficult to socially distance and follow other public health advice
The Council’s latest issue of Healing Hands (the first issue of two on COVID-19) discusses some of the ways in which organizations that provide health care and other services for people experiencing homelessness have adapted their practice in response to the shifting service provision landscape during the COVID-19 pandemic.
