Community Resource Exchange

Coronavirus Response

Given the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with great sadness that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this event for 2020. Thank you to this year’s event sponsors for pivoting those event dollars to help people struggling with homelessness. The event will be back in Spring 2021.
