Orange County Homeless Need Emergency Shelter—Now!
El Niño is now upon us–and Orange County officials have failed to act.
Homeless advocates across the OC call on the OC Board of Supervisors (OC BOS) to act quickly and swiftly to provide shelter for the over 400 people living outdoors in the Santa Ana Civic Center, the 440 people living outdoors in the Santa Ana Riverbed and the hundreds of other people living outside in the OC.
In December, the OC BOS approved a $500,000 action plan to provide emergency shelter for people living outdoors subject to the El Niño storms. This funding included a plan to provide 440 beds for the people living in the Santa Ana Riverbed. The action plan did not account for the hundreds of people living in the Santa Ana Civic Center or elsewhere in the county.
