H.O.P.E. team reaches homeless milestone
SAN BERNARDINO - (INT) – The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Homeless Outreach Proactive Enforcement Team (H.O.P.E) has reached a milestone.
On September 30th, the team located a family of six living in their vehicle in the city of San Bernardino. Utilizing donations, they were able to immediately place the family in a motel for the night and provide them groceries. The family was then linked to service providers to maintain a safe place to stay and connected to long term housing.
Since its formation in 2014, the H.O.P.E. Team has placed 2,000 homeless individuals into housing programs across the county. The H.O.P.E. Team has contacted over 10,000 homeless individuals since its inception, providing assistance to over 4100 persons.
The H.O.P.E. Team works with service providers, county departments, and cities to link homeless individuals to services to move beyond homelessness.
