Homelessness is one of the most challenging and complex social issues that we face today. To meet this challenge, we must move forward collectively, with a strong private-public partnership committed to a shared mission and vision. We must also move forward with clear strategies and goals that deliver the result we are all looking for – an end to homelessness within Riverside County.
As the Director of the Housing and Workforce Solutions Department of the County of Riverside, I am pleased to share our most recent Homeless Action Plan which will guide our work onward. This plan is the culmination of two years of comprehensive planning led by LeSar Development Consultants, the Board of Governance and the Continuum of Care.
In this Homeless Action Plan, we commit our energies to five action areas which will define our focus and programming. We believe that these action areas will enhance the homeless system of care, increase shelter capacity and permanent supportive housing units and will significantly improve outcomes. I look forward to working with all of you to achieve these goals and to provide a home for all of our homeless residents in Riverside County.
