According to the 2017 Homeless Point-In-Time Countconducted by the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority, it is estimated that approximately 331 residents experience homelessness on any given night in Santa Clarita.  

The City is committed to addressing this growing concern. This website is a resource for residents to stay educated on the City’s efforts to combat homelessness in Santa Clarita and to connect with available local resources.

In 2017, the Ad Hoc Committee on Homeless Issues was formed by the Santa Clarita City Council to discuss and work toward the most effective strategies for addressing homelessness in our City. The committee meets regularly to collaborate with stakeholders from the Santa Clarita Valley and beyond – including homeless care providers, advocates, social workers and other partners.

Even though these organizations do a tremendous job in serving the local homeless population, there was a need to have a professional analysis done to identify gaps and duplication of services.

Thanks to a planning grant from the County of Los Angeles, the City hired a research group to develop a comprehensive solutions plan. After nearly three months of research, meetings and interviews, a draft of the Community Plan to Address Homelessness has been completed.

The public has an opportunity to weigh in on the plan and be part of the solution. The draft is available below for review and comment from Wednesday, July 11, through Wednesday, August 22.
