What is the City doing about homelessness?

The City has a three-prong approach to dealing with homelessness that focuses on Collaboration, Coordination, and Communication: 

We Collaborate with partner organizations like Community Mission of Hope and Temecula Community Pantry to provide services and a path to self-sufficiency to those who are currently in need. 

We Coordinate with law enforcement, City staff, and other agencies to provide a continual, visible, and physical presence to deter illegal activity. 

We Communicate with residents and businesses to educate the public about well-intentioned actions which may unintentionally contribute to unwanted or illegal behaviors which negatively impact quality of life in our City. At all stages, the City leverages strategic partnerships with established agencies, consistent with our commitment to fiscal responsibility.
