On any given day, approximately 4,000 people experience homelessness in Long Beach. Of this, 20% are children. Together, we can change this.

The City of Long Beach works in collaboration with its non-profit community partners to address the needs of those experiencing homelessness in our area. Through our City's model Continuum of Care system, sites such as the Villages at Cabrillo, Mental Health America the Village, and the Multi-Service Center have been able to work together to assist homeless individuals and families to achieve self-sufficiency. However, there is still much work to be done.

The Mayor’s Fund for the Homeless is allocated regularly to programs in Long Beach that address significant service delivery gaps in our Continuum of Care. Donations to this fund have supported a variety of critical services, including  
                · relocation assistance 
                · job training and placement services 
                · winter shelter programs 
                · food and transportation assistance 
                · move-in assistance
