HOMELESS SERVICES

The County´┐Żs Homeless Services office was created to respond to the need for a high level of leadership and coordination on this highly complex issue. Its mission is to facilitate implementation of the county wide All-In Strategic Plan, to develop a data-driven systems approach to addressing homelessness, and to coordinate with County departments, other jurisdictions, and community-based organizations on policy, program design, program delivery, funding development, and evaluation. Emerging issues that the office will be working on in the coming year include the transition of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) lead agency from the Planning Department; providing project management and oversight for technical assistance consultants Focus Strategies for evaluating, aligning and improving the countywide response to homelessness; further expansion of seasonal emergency shelter programs to year-round shelter programs; and continuing to oversee local implementation of the State Homeless Emergency Aid Program (HEAP) and the California Emergency Solutions and Housing (CESH) program.
