Solutions for SLO
While many of us might sometimes *feel* on the verge of homelessness with the rent being so damn high, the city of SLO estimates there are literally 400+ homeless individuals on a nightly basis in our small city. Rolling through downtown, slocals can’t help but notice the uptick of our homeless population gathering, begging for change, or doing shirtless stretches in the Mission. We do a damn fine job of making things here look like rainbows and unicorns for tourists, but we have a serious issue on our hands.
40 Prado, the spankin’ new Homeless Services Center opening this year, will provide much needed relief, with additional beds and services including medical care and job training. And those of us who want to know/do more, the City and SLOPD have assembled local experts for a facilitated discussion on homelessness in SLO to talk solutions, address misconceptions, and gather community input. RSVP here and we’ll see you at the Library on Wed 6/27 at 5:30. Panel Experts assemble!
