“The goal is to put these individuals on a path towards stability, independence, and employment,” says Anderson.

“We have the highest number of homeless individuals in the region and we wanted to make sure that there are safe locations,” Anderson told his fellow Supervisors. “We have a lot of folks that are living in cars, looking at the possibility of parking lots that would be safe for them, looking at alternate housing types. We feel that it’s really important to give people a path, just like everywhere else in the county. Earlier this year, Supervisors Lawson- Remer and Desmond had a pilot program that they’re doing in North County and I admired that,  and am hoping that we can forward on this so that my district has access to shelters.”
