This is not a full list but it is a notable summary. I imagine the solution could be crowd sourced if anyone wanted to thoroughly study all these and give some new insights or actionable steps.
Recently there have been some very significant reports about homelessness issued concerning Sonoma County.
- a bay area overview
- The Homeless Talk focus group report
- the League of Women Voters report
- the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors’ project to reform the Continuum of Care.
In addition to that, just prior to the Sonoma County fires (October 2017) the homeless system was completely changed to create the Coordinated Entry System(staffed by Catholic Charities). Before that, the City of Santa Rosa changed the way homeless were treated with infractions and misdemeanors and they County and Santa Rosa advocated a Housing First model.
