Online Survey Will Help City Develop Strategies for Addressing Homelessness

The City is developing a strategic plan on homelessness to improve the effective use of existing resources, mitigate public health and public safety impacts, and align local efforts to address homelessness in the community with those of the Los Angeles County region. To help inform this process, the City would like to hear from members of the community through an online survey.

The City was awarded a grant of $50,000 through County of Los Angeles Measure H to develop a Strategic Plan for Homelessness. The goal of developing a plan is to improve the effective use of existing resources, identify new strategies and resources, and align with the County’s Homeless Initiative.

An Advisory Group comprised of a broad cross-section of community stakeholders has been identified and will have its first strategic planning meeting on February 13, 2018. The Advisory group includes representatives from the City, the Sheriff’s Department, the local faith community, Malibu CART (Community Assistance Resource Team), The People Concern and its homeless outreach workers, Standing on Stone (S.O.S.), the local business community, State Parks, County Library, St. Joseph’s Center (the City's Coordinated Entry System partner), a Malibu resident and business owner, and the Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness. The Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness was included because it has extensive experience in addressing issues surrounding homelessness. The draft plan will be presented to the City Council later this spring.

To take the survey, go to For more information, contact Public Safety Manager Susan Dueñas at 310-456-2489 ext. 313 or
