Covid 19

in this together

As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread, we know that it is our responsibility to ensure the safety of you, your family, and our community. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 and will continue to share resources on our lihomeless.org website. Those experiencing homelessness are amongst those most vulnerable.

Please help the LI Continuum of Care (CoC) continue to dedicate their services towards those most vulnerable to ensure they are safe, healthy, and housed.
