Homeless Solutions for Huntington Beach

The City is committed to addressing the issue of homelessness to assist citizens in need while minimizing the impact on the community by ensuring that businesses can thrive and residents' quality of life is protected.

Beginning in 2015, the City assigned a full-time officer dedicated to homeless issues and has continued to allocate resources as the number of homeless continues to grow. The City's efforts have grown to include a Homeless Task Force (with two full-time officers, 1 program coordinator and up to 4 case managers) and a plan to create a Navigation Center to provide shelter for eligible homeless individuals with ties to Huntington Beach. This multi-pronged approach is accomplished in a variety of ways such as weekly outreach to engage homeless individuals and determine their needs, reuniting individuals with family members, working within the County's Coordinated Entry System to match individuals and families with housing opportunities, assisting in eviction prevention, maintaining walk-in office hours at the South Police Substation, as well working cooperatively with local schools to assist children who are homeless or housing insecure. Since 2015, officers and case managers have helped more than 262 individuals transition off the streets (with 70 being reunified with family).
