Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness releases new guide to help communities with housing-based responses to COVID-19 [2020-05-05]

Housing cures homelessness and is the best protection against COVID-19.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, coordinating quick access to housing is more important than ever.
