Reaching Unsheltered People

Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
April 3, 2020 | 12-1 p.m. CT

The second in our weekly town halls on the COVID-19 crisis and homelessness will address the unique challenges of people living in encampments and other outdoor locations. Unsheltered people may not run the same risks of congregation like those in shelters do, but are already at greater risk of poor sanitation, violence, forced displacement, and disconnection from service providers, among other things. We will tackle these distinct issues with a panel that includes internationally recognized street medicine experts and outreach workers. Ample time will be dedicated to discussion and problem-sharing.
