Support communities during the coronavirus crisis

Homeless service providers on the front lines of COVID-19 response need your help.
March 26, 2020

Homeless service providers across the country are on the front lines of the COVID-19 response.

We must protect people experiencing homelessness, the staff serving them, and our health care systems. Right now, they’re lacking the space, supplies, and support they need to effectively combat this crisis.

How you can help

Support Communities Directly 

Below we’ve compiled a list of the lead organizations in each Built for Zero community, because community leaders are the experts on what their communities challenges and needs are. You can use this list to find which organizations in your communities are helping people experiencing homelessness through this crisis, get in touch with leaders to offer your support, or to financially support their organizations.
