Coalition for the Homeless COVID-19 Updates
Updated October 8, 2020
While the current COVID-19 pandemic in NYC has dramatically impacted the lives of every person in our city, homeless New Yorkers are particularly vulnerable, as they have much higher rates of serious underlying health problems, generally lack access to quality health care, and have no way to self-quarantine.
The Coalition for the Homeless is doing all in our power to ensure that our neighbors without homes get the help and protection they need during this terrible crisis.
