What do we really know about the intersection between COVID-19 and homelessness? Gathering evidence has been challenging. CoCs are in emergency response mode, PiT counts were hampered, and research studies often take time to initiate. However, limited research and data are available.
The National Health Care for the Homeless Council tracks positive cases among people experiencing homelessness. Researchers such as those at the Benioff Homelessness and Housing Initiative are conducting testing events and vaccination-focused surveys. And a team at the University of Washington has explored the benefits of motel/hotel programs to health and other aspects of well-being.
Join us for this expert panel discussing some of the latest homelessness research/data related to the pandemic.
