(Victor Valley)– The Sheriff’s Homeless Outreach Proactive Enforcement Team recently located a family of six living in their vehicle.
Utilizing donations, they were able to immediately place the family in a motel for the night and provide them groceries. The family was then linked to service providers to obtain a safe place to stay and connected to long term housing. With this family, the H.O.P.E. Team has placed 2,000 homeless individuals into housing programs across the county. The H.O.P.E. Team has contacted over 10,000 homeless individuals since its inception in 2014, providing assistance to over 4,100 persons. The H.O.P.E. Team works with service providers, county departments, and cities to link homeless individuals to services to move beyond homelessness. This monumental number of individuals housed is solely due to the great partners across the county, from service providers to county departments and the support of the Board of Supervisors.
