Covid-19 Resources

The Homeless Services Consortium, City of Madison, and Dane County are coordinating efforts with Public Health Madison & Dane County to develop protocols, best practices and next steps for serving people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that people experiencing homelessness are more vulnerable to infectious diseases and want to provide the most up to date information possible. This guide is intended for homeless services providers to find resources and information on cancellations and closures in one place. It will be updated as new information comes available. Please go to Public Health Madison & Dane County for the most recent information on what is happening in our community.
