Reducing Homelessness

Our community must come together to combat the disproportionate impacts of the homelessness crisis.

Take legal action to revise the County’s jail release procedures and to ensure that homeless support services are equitably distributed across the County.

Work with the business community, educational institutions, and community organizations to provide work placement services for homelessness resulting from lost jobs.

Push the State and County to reopen the Fairview Development Center as a permanent supportive housing option for mentally ill homeless individuals.

Refuse to expand local shelters until the County builds proportionate shelter space in the ‘South Service Planning Area.’
