The beginning of summer has been very exciting.
Local and regional partners were honored at the San Diego Housing Federation’s Ruby Awards as well as the Behavioral Health Recognition Dinner. Also, new communities from across the country joined the 100,000 Homes Campaign and participated in the Campaign’s Registry Week Boot Camp in Los Angeles. In addition to these stories, read below for a special interview with Zach Olmstead, former Homeless Policy Director for Housing California, who joined the Office of Assembly Majority Leader Toni Atkins on June 24 to focus on housing and homelessness issues.
We have broadened the focus of our monthly Homelessness Update. Going forward, we will provide information on local and regional happenings, an overview of state and national progress including updates on important homelessness legislation and budget items, and look closer at best practices across the country.
We look forward to keeping you up to date on the latest news and policy developments in efforts to end homelessness.
