The Ocean Beach Town Council calls upon the City and County of San Diego to now bring their successful practices, and homelessness resources and programs (inclusive of using the Housing First model with permanent supportive housing; coordinated outreach, intake, and assessment; providing supportive services that are specific to client needs; and building collaborative partnerships) beyond Downtown San Diego and into District 2 of the City of San Diego and our coastal communities, inclusive of Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach, Mission Beach and the river beds.

This resolution is a beginning step toward addressing homelessness in Ocean Beach and we will be collaborating with other community groups and service providers to continue dialogue toward ending chronic homelessness in Ocean Beach and our surrounding communities.
