This new Coronavirus is dangerous for everyone but especially for the local homeless population. While there are many factors as to why the homeless population is especially vulnerable there are ways you can help!
The best way you can help protect these vulnerable populations is to protect yourself. Shelter at home to stop the spread of infection. Wash your hands frequently. Avoid unnecessary trips downtown.
Donate Sanitation Supplies
While there are shortages for things like wet wipes, hand sanitizer, etc. if you can donate them then please do! Even things like soap, shampoo, and basic toiletries help provide a higher level of hygiene that the local homeless population need access to now more than ever.
There are tons of resources available to the local homeless population from the city, local churches and non-profit organizations. Help spread the word!
During these times of lock down, social distancing and increasingly less human connection, we are determined to bring our artists and others experiencing homelessness an opportunity for self-expression and creative relief to combat the increasing risk of depression and isolation.
