The Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness will host a community meeting, “Success Stories: From the Street to Home,” 7 p.m. on Monday, November 18, in the Palisades Library community room, 861 Alma Real Dr.
Even as homelessness continues to be a major humanitarian challenge in the City of Los Angeles, the PPTFH’s model of helping those people has been effective the past three years.
Two social workers, underwritten by the PPTFH, and volunteers have helped 107 homeless individuals transition from the street to housing with the help of the People Concern Outreach Team and LAPD.
At Monday’s meeting, residents will be able to meet and hear people who are providing the necessary professional help, an enlightened landlord and two former homeless individuals. The group includes:
- The team from the People Concern, who will describe their process for outreach, assessment and housing.
- A landlord who accepts housing vouchers and fulfills a critical role in the process.
- Two newly housed clients.
Attendance at PPTFH community meetings is encouraged and needed. It is a way to be involved, provide support to the growing PPTFH community-wide program and help address homelessness in the Palisades. Come and participate! Visit: pptfh.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
