City Responds to Homeless Efforts
 
Nationally and locally, the homeless population continues to grow and includes not only adults, but children and families as well. The State of California alone holds 20% of the national homeless population while Chula Vista has seen an increase of over 25%. In response, the South Bay Homeless Advocacy Coalition (SBHA Coalition) will hold a one day event for homeless individuals and families where they will be able to access a variety of resources in one location.

The event will be held at Parkway Recreation Center, 385 Park Way, Chula Vista, on Wednesday, November 14. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., participants can receive on-site medical care which includes flu shots, social service benefits, substance abuse services, spiritual guidance, food, and haircuts.

The SBHA Coalition members consist of local government and social service organizations. Participating in the November 14 event will be the City of Chula Vista, Chula Vista Community Collaborative, South Bay Community Services, LifeActs Church, Turning the Hearts Center, Interfaith Shelter Network, Chula Vista Elementary School District, and the County of San Diego. More than 50 volunteers from 20 different social service and government agencies will assist with the effort.

To learn more about homelessness and how it affects our community, or to find out how to get involved, please contact Angelica Davis, Chula Vista’s Housing/Grants Project Coordinator, at (619) 691-5036.
