Support California's "No Place Like Home" Initiative

This petition made change with 317 supporters!

Homelessness persists as a major problem facing Santa Cruz County. 1,964 people experience homelessness on any given day in Santa Cruz County, and 84% of those people became homeless while living in Santa Cruz County. A substantial number of these people experience mental health challenges.

A bipartisan coalition of members from the California State Senate have introduced the “No Place Like Home” initiative, which aims to address the problem of homelessness at its root, the shortage of available housing. The “No Place like Home” initiative will give local communities the resources they need to build housing for unhoused people with mental health challenges.

Smart Solutions to Homelessness of Santa Cruz County recognizes this strategy as a smart solution and asks that you please sign this petition and share this with your friends and family members. It will take all of Santa Cruz and California, working together, to solve homelessness once and for all.
