How can academic institutions support low-income students or students with unsafe home conditions while adhering to COVID-19 guidelines?

This is a dilemma I have been thinking about quite a bit. For some students who are homeless or living in unsafe homes or homes with food insecurity, it is actually safer for them to be in school even with the pandemic, I think. Schools that have not reopened have the responsibility to give laptops or other wifi enabled devices to children and teens from underprivileged backgrounds either using their endowments or more likely district funding. The government should be making sure libraries are funded to open specifically for these students and that there are safe social distancing measures in place.

When safe spaces are involved, there is always a risk of creating groups of people that use them to avoid ideological conflict, but the point is that outside of those spaces there is a constant barrage of opposing view points that minorities cannot control. Those opposing view points can be physically and emotionally harmful to the minorities. There is a difference between disagreeing over someone's existence and disagreeing over an economic bill that supports small businesses.
