The landscape of homelessness continues to evolve throughout the State of California and is becoming increasingly visible in the suburbs of the Tri-Valley, especially in Livermore. In the past few years, Livermore has seen an increase in the number of residents experiencing poverty and a decrease in the availability of affordable rental housing, which in turn has contributed to an increase in homelessness. Housing availability is only one aspect of an individual’s life that may contribute to homelessness. Other factors include mental health symptoms, overuse of alcohol or drugs, health conditions and availability of adequate employment.
Please join the City Council Subcommittee on Homelessness at the first of a series of community meetings that will address short-, medium-, and long-term strategies. Hear from experts and service providers about opportunities, challenges, and resources as the Subcommittee evaluates options for Livermore.
