ANAHEIM, Calif. (Jan. 18, 2018) — Anaheim is ready for the pending clearing of the Santa Ana River Trail with extra help for those living in homelessness as well as additional resources for residents, businesses and neighborhoods concerned about the winding down of encampments.
As Anaheim has done since 2014, we will continue providing weekly homeless outreach services with City Net and the Anaheim Homeless Collaborative, a collection of more than 100 groups working together to address homelessness.
Since 2014, Anaheim and City Net have helped transition nearly 900 people out of homelessness.
As the county of Orange works to clear the river trail in coming weeks, the Anaheim Police Department’s homeless outreach and community policing teams will step up their outreach across the city to offer help and services to those who are homeless as well as ensure residents and businesses are safe.
Plans to address the county’s initial clearing of the river trail on Jan. 22 include:
Residents and business owners needing assistance can submit a request through Anaheim Anytime, at Anaheim.net/AnaheimAnytime, and will receive a quick response.
Those who would like to help, donate or get involved in addressing homelessness can call City Net at (714) 451-6198.
Anyone who needs homeless services can also call City Net for help.
