Navigating Homelessness in Placentia

In order to maintain quality of life in our City, while addressing federal mandates and demonstrating compassion for the homeless community, the City of Placentia is taking a proactive approach towards addressing homelessness. To this end, a proposed Navigation Center is being considered within the City. 

A Navigation Center will empower our local law enforcement to have the tools necessary to prevent camping on public locations such as parks and sidewalks throughout our City. The proposed Navigation Center will also serve as a location that provides the supportive resources necessary to successfully transition homeless persons into permanent housing. The proposed site under consideration is located at 527 Fee Ana Street, which is located in an industrial portion of the City. The City is seeking your feedback on addressing homelessness in our community.

Please join us for an informational meeting to discuss:

· History of Orange County and Placentia homelessness

· Proposed site location, funding and operations 

· Hear from industry leading experts on solving homelessness 

· Opportunity for questions and feedback

Two meetings will be provided for your convenience. The City of Placentia looks forward to hearing from our residents and businesses as we all work together toward addressing homelessness within our community.

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 - 6:00 PM I Gomez Community Center I 1701 Atwood Avenue

Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 6:00 PM I PYLUSD Board Room I 1301 E. Orangethorpe Avenue

Your participation is crucial in helping Placentia determine the next steps of addressing homelessness within our community. To ensure adequate seating, please RSVP  at homelessness@placentia.org. Childcare for school-aged children will be provided by Community Services. In addition, you may send comments ahead of the meetings.
