Homelessness Townhall in San Andreas

A Town Hall meeting has been scheduled for early next month to discuss homelessness in Calaveras County and tap into newly available resources available.   The meeting will be held in collaboration with multiple community partners, and will be held Monday, Sept. 9th at San Andreas Elementary School.   Among the discussion topics are what the groups are doing to help assist Calaveras county residents who lack stable housing and how the county can leverage the No Place Like Home (NPLH) Program, which Governor Jerry Brown signed in July of 2016.  The program allocates up to $2 billion in bond proceeds, repayable by funding from the Mental Health Services Act, towards investing in the development of permanent supportive housing for persons who are in need of mental health services and are experiencing homelessness, chronic homelessness, or who are at risk of chronic homelessness.   Last May, Calaveras County instituted a Homeless Task Force to take a coordinated, community-based approach to related issues.  Overall priorities under the Calaveras County Homeless Plan include coordinating local data collection and planning efforts; increasing the housing inventory available to the homeless population; enhancing expanding housing support services; strengthening community collaborations, and pursuing emerging opportunities.  The Town Hall meeting is set for Monday, Sept. 9th at the San Andreas Elementary School beginning at 5:30 p.m.
