CM2019-004 HOMELESS COUNTDATE: JANUARY 31, 2019 C a 4 O&aaq�a MEMORANDUM TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY CO NCIL FROM: KONRADT BARTLAM, CITY MANA RE: HOMELESS COUNT CM2019-004 The Department of Housing and Urban Planning (HUD) requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons, referred to as the Point -in -Time count. Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally. The Point -in -Time count data provides critical feedback about the nature and needs of persons experiencing homelessness in their areas. This year's Point -in -Time count occurred on Thursday, January 24. The deployment team arrived at 6:00 a.m. and was in the field until about 8:30 a.m. The team included two City Staff (1 from Community Services and 1 from Code Enforcement) and two deputies. Contact was made with four people, all adults. None had children with them, but one had a dog. One individual refused to answer any of the survey questions, but were still included as part of the count. Contact was made at four different locations: the open space behind BevMo, outside the medical center on Los Serranos Country Club, behind Smart & Final, and walking in the street in the Los Serranos area. If you have any questions regarding staff's efforts, please contact Alma Hernandez in Community Services at (909) 364-2717. KB:JM:ah
