Shelter & Food Resources
Those experiencing houselessness deserve social service solutions delivered by trained and trauma-informed providers, which is why we do not recommend individual citizens attempt direct engagement work with encampments. Please respect the autonomy of all encampments, including prioritizing your personal safety and boundaries.
The best way you can help right now is to use your time and energy to advocate for dignified short, medium and long-term housing solutions in our city.
