NHCA Public Safety Committee Meeting
The NHCA has ramped down certain operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. We respect the importance of sheltering in place. We will resume our public safety programs, advocacy work and attention to community gardens as conditions allow. In keeping with our mission, we will post public safety and health information as appropriate. To learn more about the NHCA, check out Our Story.
