Leave no one out

03.13.20

By now, we've all heard the steps to protect ourselves from COVID-19. 

Wash your hands for twenty seconds. Cough into your elbow. Stay home if you’re sick.

But what happens to those of us who have no home? Just as you look to your doctors for answers and a calm, competent response during this crisis, thousands of our neighbors will turn to the health professional they know and trust at Health Care for the Homeless.

We have always helped people in crisis with nowhere else to go.

The dangers posed by the coronavirus are great and unpredictable. And people without homes are always at greater risk with a fraction of the resources needed to respond.

But you have the power to help and make sure that no one is left out. Your support helps our efforts to:

  • Develop and roll out screening efforts at clinic sites downtown, in West Baltimore and in Baltimore County
  • Get enough supplies to meet the growing need while protecting our staff
  • Advocate with public officials to make sure pandemic response efforts meet the unique needs of people without homes

There are uncertain days ahead. Help Health Care for the Homeless ensure everyone is treated with the same care and respect you’d want for your family.

Have you made any changes during the pandemic that you’ll carry forward? For us, providing care over the phone to clients like Antonio Barnes has been a major breakthrough.

Before COVID-19, Antonio was a regular at our Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) group where he looked forward to therapy, Suboxone and peer support in facing over 20 years of depression and substance use.

Bushra Lohrasbi is always on the run—literally. And not even a quarantine can stop her.

It was late-April and Bushra was like most of us: stuck at home. COVID-19 had brought an early end to her final semester at Penn State, and she was back at her parents’ house in Ellicott City, looking for a way to help.
