Marking progress; keeping up momentum

Since the summer of 2022, the city of Santa Cruz’s programs addressing homelessness have made remarkable strides:

• We’ve served 578 individuals through shelter and safe parking programs.

• 74 individuals have transitioned into housing.

• 77 people reconnected with family and friends in their hometowns.

• We’ve provided 725 emergency shelter beds over the course of 19 nights  

(more details available on the City’s website at )

Progress?  Missing: the actual cost of the “emergency shelter beds”,  the large number of people left outside, & the wasteful and futile cost of the enforcement sweeps
