*Actions on illegal camping: Actions included outreach and citations on public and private properties. The injunction allows the City to move illegal camps on public land if campers are blocking rights of way, are on school property, or in parks with children's programming. For all other public land, the city offers a shelter bed and personal storage and if those offers are refused, a 72 hour notice to vacate is given. Campers are required to leave private property immediately upon owner's request or if no trespassing signs have been posted.

How Are We Doing?

The City has increased our investment in Supportive Housing vouchers by 250% since 2018. This housing assistance paired with supportive services is one of the most effective ways to help people exit homelessness permanently. City vouchers helped 1,365 families in FY23. Based on previous years, 95% of those families will remain in housing after 2 years.
