Homeless Continuum of Care

The City implements a Homeless Services Continuum of Care to prevent homelessness and assist people in becoming self-sufficient. The City has entered into agreements to provide low-cost property leases, financial assistance, and technical assistance to develop 15 emergency beds, 34 transitional beds, and 60 permanent units for homeless people. The City also funds other programs that assist homeless people, including Foothill Family Shelter, Emergency Motel Vouchers, House of Ruth, and SOVA Food Security Center. The City also works with other nonprofit partners to provide auxiliary services. Partners include Children’s Enrichment Program, Transitional Assistance Department, Salvation Army, and the Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County to address the complex individual and inter-jurisdictional issue of homelessness.
