Steps to take

The 8th St/Gladys Block Group has been working to prevent homeless encampment in Rose Park. There are key steps to take to help the person and maintain the welcoming atmosphere of our public space. Please review. And thank you all at 8th St/Gladys Block Group for taking the lead and reaching out to city departments that can act on these complex situations. Especially Max, Tracy and Suja.

Call Homeless Services Hotline 562.570.4550

The  outreach team at the Health Department’s Homeless Services Division reviews the calls. The calls are reviewed each day and prioritized by concern, location and hot spots and can take up to 72 hours for a response to the site. If a call is concerning an area already engaged by outreach staff the call will be noted as additional information for an ongoing site. We do not have a general email for people to send requests and photos. If the caller would like to speak to someone directly all they have to do is request a call back when they leave a message and staff will call them to discuss any concerns.
