Help the Homeless Off the Street,
Into Treatment and Housing
The homelessness crisis in California is out of control. Encampments in public spaces are a threat to both neighborhood quality of life and to the health and safety of homeless people themselves. People are dying on the street every day in San Diego County, and there is nothing compassionate about letting others suffer on the street from mental illness and drug addiction.
We must invest in housing programs, enroll homeless people in the mental health and addiction treatment services they need, and remove and prevent encampments in public spaces.
