Homelessness Solutions

Homelessness is a major and growing concern for Santa Rosa, and has been identified as one of the City Council's top priorities. However, unlike a street repair or starting a business, homelessness is a complex social issue with many contributing factors that cannot be easily or quickly solved by a single agency or organization. Solutions require both immediate and long-term strategies, and partnerships with County agencies, community organizations, and you. We at the City of Santa Rosa want you to know what we are doing to address homelessness and to invite you to work with us to reduce homelessness in Santa Rosa. The links below provide resources and information about solutions that the City is currently implementing.
