HOTHC cares about the health of you and our community. We recognize the seriousness of the outbreak for people experiencing homelessness, or those who are living in poverty, who have higher risks of exposure to infectious disease, have a harder time accessing high-quality healthcare, and are often overlooked during emergencies. In an effort to help, we have compiled a list of resources to assist in your preparation for a possible coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak from our federal partners and local agencies we work with.

Additionally, if you have resources you would like to donate, contact us at or donate via PayPal to HOTHC to support the work of our local homeless service providers.
