Homeless Outreach Community Coalition Meeting #2

Working Together to Build An Effective Network of Help

The City invites local organizations to attend our second Homeless Outreach Community Coalition meeting on Thursday, February 8, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Lake Elsinore Cultural Arts Center 183 N. Main St. Lake Elsinore, CA 92530. 

The City is seeking any interested private, non-profit, religious organizations, governmental agencies and/or individuals willing to join our efforts to find lasting, real solutions for our area’s homeless by giving them a HAND UP rather than a HAND OUT. This coalition will bring together our community to collaborate on how best to serve those in need including: 

  • Assessing available resources and identifying gaps in services. 
  • Creating an efficient and effective network of resources and agencies to help. 
  • Educating each other about best practices in serving those in need. 
  • Tackling local challenges related to homelessness including feeding, housing, behavioral health, addiction and support.
  • Developing a variety of programs to assist those struggling with the barriers of homelessness. 

There are many needs and challenges in our community related to homelessness including addiction, behavioral health, housing and basic necessities such as transportation, identification and health care. The City of Lake Elsinore is committed to bringing together all local resources to collaborate and address these challenges. 

Our overall goal is to be able to help someone right away by connecting them to the right resources at the right time to get them out of homelessness. This collaborative will allow for positive, heartfelt changes in the lives of those in need. We believe this Community Coalition will become a priceless asset to our community and hope you will join us as our partner. 

For more information and to RSVP, please send an email with your organization and contact information including the type of services you specialize in and offer to pio@lake-elsinore.org as soon as possible.
