At 1:30 p.m., the Board will conduct an informational workshop to discuss County efforts to coordinate homeless services and focus on evidence-based practices with community partners. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) envisions a system of care in which people who become homeless are quickly returned to permanent housing, people who are housed receive the services necessary to stay there, and the effects of homelessness on the health of Marin residents are minimized. Achieving that vision requires more than the services HHS provides; it requires partnerships with other county departments, our cities and towns, and community-based organizations, all of which have different roles to play. HHS acts as a convener to facilitate those partnerships. Marin HHS Homelessness Policy Analyst Ashley Hart McIntyre will offer a presentation of findings and recommendations.
The Board conducted the workshop and shared comments with staff.
