The Santa Monica Homeless Count will take place on the night of Wednesday, January 28, 2015 between 10:30pm-2:30am. The Count is headquartered at St. Monica’s Catholic Church Grand Pavilion located at 725 California Avenue in Santa Monica. On this night, volunteers will conduct the most important data-collection effort of the year – a city-wide street count of the number of homeless people on the streets of Santa Monica.
r The City is proud of it’s long history as a compassionate city, but realizes that homelessness has a significant impact on the community and that it needs to work harder and be smarter to reduce the number of people on our streets. Over the past few years the City has brought on new, innovative programs and targeted services and housing to people who have been on the streets the longest. The City has had had significant success in getting people off the street, in part because they continually collect data and use that data to refine approaches and support requests for grants from state and federal funding agencies.
