Homelessness is a national humanitarian crisis and no city is immune. There are people in our community and people from our community who are experiencing homelessness. And while the City does not provide direct services, cooperatively addressing homelessness is a City Council priority.
Our charge is to serve as a convener, provide community leadership, and develop and implement strategies that link people with resources. We work to enforce local regulations; and to help businesses and residents understand homelessness, their role, ways to contribute, and how law enforcement can help.
