1. CONNECTING PEOPLE TO HOUSING STARTS IN PUBLIC SPACE, ESPECIALLY NOW.

2. THE COMMUNITIES THAT SUPPORT PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS HAVE BEEN DISRUPTED.

3. WHEN PHYSICAL DISTANCING IS DIFFICULT, PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT.

4. WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD DISTRIBUTION, WORK WITH THE EXPERTS.

5. PUBLIC SPACES CAN GIVE ACCESS TO PERSONAL HYGIENE.

6. SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS ARE USING NEW DIGITAL TOOLS, WHEN THEY HAVE THE RESOURCES.

7. CITIES MUST ADDRESS THE HOUSING CRISIS, NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.
