Huntington Beach’s Approach to Homelessness
Here in Huntington Beach, we strive for a balanced approach to helping those in need while minimizing the impact on the community. In 2015, we established the Homeless Task Force to connect with the homeless, understand their needs, and provide referrals to resources that will reconnect them with families and provide shelter. The City also engaged in an extensive site selection process to build a navigation center to temporarily shelter the homeless. After an extensive search, the 174-bed shelter was identified as the best way to address the needs of our homeless population, given existing federal restrictions.
