Originally developed to provide harm reduction services to people isolating in COVID recovery hotels, the Mobile Shelter Support Program (formerly known as MOVID) also offers case management, personal support, and follow-up services to people in shelters, encampments, and respite sites. Just as important, shelter staff and residents learn how to effectively respond to overdoses and other issues that arise during the ongoing opioid crisis.
