ROCKLIN, CA – Wednesday, April 12 in Rocklin: Community Conversations about Race-Homelessness and Affordable Housing Options in Placer County – discussion
Placer County is making progress in a coordinated effort to reduce homelessness in the county and to provide services that help people re-establish themselves within our communities.
In the 2022 People Experiencing Homelessness Time Points (PIT) of 750 individuals counted in Placer County, 54% (408) were homeless. What are the barriers to building emergency shelters and more affordable low-income housing here? How do County/City Mobile Crisis Teams help people experiencing homelessness?
