Homelessness impacts the community and the quality of life of all stakeholders, the homeless and non-homeless alike. The homelessness situation has a high (and long overdue) priority for action and funding by The City and County of Los Angeles and the California State Government. The mission of this committee is to educate and inform our stakeholders on the very complex issue of homelessness and mitigation thereof, empowering and encouraging active participation in potential solutions to address the problem in a productive and humane way. A goal is to assist the Encino Neighborhood Council to communicate the needs and wishes of sheltered and unsheltered stakeholders with our elected officials, and see that services are made available in a fair and equitable manner to Encino as well as to our greater San Fernando Valley communities.
