Alternative to Encampment Recommendations

On March 17, 2021 the County Homeless Services Oversight Council (HSOC) approved the “Alternative to Encampment Recommendations” document.

These recommendations were put together by the HSOC Encampment Ad Hoc working group in response to Supervisor Gibson’s request for proposed alternative programs to encampments throughout the County. 

The document was reviewed and approved by both the Encampment Committee and the full HSOC before it will being presented to the Board of Supervisors.

HSOC is an advisory Council to the Board of Supervisors (BOS). The recommendations have not yet been accepted by the BOS, hence there is no current plan for implementation.

We are hopeful that the County now has options that can help to move towards the goal of solving homelessness in the County.
