Housing Forward Video Update

Hi Housing Forward Friends,

A lot has happened in our world, and for Housing Forward, since we last emailed. I wanted to send an update about what we are doing to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last three weeks, we have continued to work to ensure all our clients have the services and support they need. In addition, the health and well-being of our volunteers and staff are at the forefront of our thoughts and actions.

Because this situation is continually evolving, I wanted to share an update through this video, filmed on Friday, March 27.

These are challenging and uncertain times for all of us, but there’s also a reason for hope. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of donors and volunteers reaching out to ask how they can help people experiencing homelessness. We are deeply grateful to the many individuals, organizations, and businesses who have assisted us so far.

If you are interested in helping, please consider giving online to our COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund or donating items for House to Home Kits in anticipation of the day our newly housed clients arrive home. For more information about House To Home Kits please contact Erik Johnson at

P.S. A longer version of this video is available at

Thank you, and take care!
Lynda Schueler
Executive Director, Housing Forward
