Rocklin, Calif. – Wednesday, April 12 in Rocklin: Community Conversations on Race – Homelessness and Affordable Housing Options in Placer County – panel discussion
Placer County is making progress in a coordinated effort to reduce homelessness in the county and to provide services that assist people in reestablishing themselves within our communities.
At the 2022 point-in-time (PIT) count of people who are experiencing homelessness, 750 individuals were counted in Placer County, 54% (408) were unsheltered. What barriers exist to building emergency shelters and more low-income, affordable housing here? How do the county/city mobile crisis teams assist people who are experiencing homelessness? How will projects like the Campus of Hope lower the costs of emergency services?
Please join us for this panel discussion, as we create an open space where we can:
- Explore the work of the Placer County Regional Homelessness planning team
- Hear about Roseville’s efforts to reduce the affordable housing shortage
- Learn what social services are needed for people who are experiencing homelessness
