Featured Story: Project Place Clients & Staff Get Vaccinated!
Phase 1 of Massachusetts COVID-19 vaccination program includes individuals living and working in congregate care settings due to increased risk of exposure to COVID-19. Project Place is eligible to participate in phase 1 as we provide programs and services to individuals experiencing homelessness who live in shelters and halfway houses. Additionally, we operate two housing programs, Gatehouse and Betty’s Place. This winter, Project Place shared educational materials and resources with clients and staff as we advocated to provide access to the vaccine for our community.
On January 22nd and February 19th, Project Place staff members were vaccinated against COVID-19 at the South Hampton Shelter. We are thankful for the Boston Public Health Commission for providing homeless service providers access to the vaccine and for Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program who administered the vaccination clinic.
