*Create Hospitality Kits for Project Roomkey
Quick Overview: Make Hospitality Kits for our community's most vulnerable individuals who are moving into hotel rooms through Project Roomkey.
Mission: California has become the first state in the nation to secure FEMA approval to utilize hotel rooms for tens of thousands of people experiencing homelessness in California in order to protect them, and the state, from COVID-19. Project Roomkey has set an initial goal of securing up to 15,000 hotel rooms to move homeless individuals most vulnerable to COVID-19 off the street, out of shelters, and into a safe place.
Impact: Many of those living on the streets are older, sick, or have underlying health issues. This is the group of people who are most at-risk of COVID-19. By providing basic hygiene items, snacks and activities to make the Project Roomkey participants' move more comfortable, you will help ease their transition to shelter.
