Hope for Homelessness



A joint webinar between the California State Association of Counties & the League of California Cities: The latest numbers show that more Californians than ever are homeless, with the biggest increases among the unsheltered. Counties and cities in California have been responding to the crisis in different ways to provide shelter beds, behavioral health services, and help keep people off the streets and out of riverbeds to begin with. A joint city-county task force has spent the last year examining responses from around the state and discuss their findings.
