City of Long Beach Joint Information Center

Long Beach, CA – The City of Long Beach has launched a new tab on its Homelessness Services and Information Hub website detailing the City’s response efforts for the homelessness state of emergency. The new tab, available at, will offer a one-stop-shop for City news, data and resources surrounding the homelessness crisis and will also support the City’s efforts to provide timely, transparent information to the public.

“We continue to look for ways to provide as much information to our community as possible,” said Mayor Rex Richardson. “This new tab enhances the existing webpage, which already offers an extensive array of information, and will also hold us accountable as we move forward in our emergency response.”

The Emergency Response tab will be updated regularly and includes the following information:

  • Synopsis and mission statement for the emergency proclamation.
  • Link to the newly-launched data dashboard.
  • A list of notable activities related to the emergency.
  • Updates to the Long Beach City Council, including presentations and recordings.
  • A list of emergency response livestreams hosted by Mayor Richardson.
  • Frequently asked questions, available in English, Spanish, Khmer and Tagalog, regarding new programs and shelter sites.

In December 2022, the City launched the new Homelessness Services and Information Hub webpage. The webpage was developed in effort to provide a central location for resources and information for the public and to serve as a multifaceted information and resource hub for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Since its launch, the webpage has quickly become one of the most viewed City webpages.
