Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council

The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges for communities across the country. Rural communities face the additional difficulties of limited resources and services to assist people experiencing homelessness during the outbreak. In this interactive discussion, panelists working in rural areas will discuss the challenges they have encountered and the strategies they have developed to address them. Attendees are encouraged to bring their questions and experiences and share in the discussion.
