Homelessness - Housing First














The City of Riverside in October 2016 conducted a day long review of our approach to address the growing issues and impacts of homelessness in the City.

One of the outcomes of this presentation was the recommendation from City Staff that Riverside should examine our approach in dealing with this issue from a policing, code enforcement and temporary shelters to one that provides permanent supportive housing. This could lead to permanent supportive neighborhood housing development projects in all seven Wards.

RNP will be following this issue when it is brought back to Council in January of 2017.

Neighbors.... would you support a permanent supportive housing project in your neighborhood ?
