Message from Opening Doors NWFL

Hello, Homeless Partners:
In an ongoing effort to provide updated information regarding community resources to support people facing homelessness we have created a new page on our Opening Doors Northwest Florida website specifically for service availability during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through collaboration and coordination of services our continuum of care can take critical action to help support people facing homelessness during this difficult time.
Supportive Service Agencies and Community-Based Organizations that provide necessities to people experiencing homelessness such as food, respite, healthcare, hygiene, prescription assistance, social security, food stamps or transportation are invited to share your information on the COVID-19 Resource page.
Support for the homeless during the COVID-19 crisis doesn’t just entail helping those who are already on the streets. It also includes protecting people who are at high risk of losing their homes because of the economic impacts of the virus. We also invite agencies who are offering housing, financial assistance, rent and/or utility assistance, to share information.
Please visit: Opening Doors NWFL’s website to view the new COVID-19 Community page at https://openingdoorsnwfl.org/covid-19 for news, COVID-19 guidelines and updated resources.

  1. So, what is the minimum number of deaths for which we will not shut down the country? I have not heard any mention of a specific # of deaths for which we must shut down the country, devestate our economy and whittle away at our liberty.
