EVENT 10am today (Mar 26) Press conference on role of Shelters in curbing Coronavirus: featuring Monica Nilsson

Posted on the Elim Church Shelter whiteboard

Today at 10am, Statewide Homeless Service Providers and Advocates will sound the alarm on COVID-19, specifically talking about the futility of an executive order that asks people to shelter in place yet does not protect the homeless.

Leaders from organizations across Minnesota providing emergency shelter and services to people experiencing homelessness will give an update on the extraordinary public health and safety challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis. They will call for heightened urgency and resources to ensure this highly vulnerable population and those who serve them are adequately protected. Statewide goals to #FlattenTheCurve, prevent community spread and manage demand on hospitals will fall short if critical support is not secured.

Monica Nilsson is on the agenda to speak about the Elim Church and Strong Tower Parish Shelters and draw from her decades of experiencing working with people experiencing homelessness.
