Homelessness and Mental Health Clients

Every person has the right to live in conditions that assure safety and security. Rather than continuing to convert small private residences and hotels for this purpose, Michael believes streamlining the County’s scattered services into one larger facility that can provide housing for upwards of 200 people will better serve our community and is more fiscally responsible in the long term. He also supports creating a large residential treatment facility to assist community members with more severe mental health problems as an alternative to housing them in jail as well as creating a designated safe camp area where showers and toilet facilities are provided along with security and County services for people experiencing homelessness who live in their vehicles.
