Action – Mark your calendar! Come out on June 3rd and show our city council our support for a year-round shelter/housing solution!
At the Monday, June 3, meeting at 6pm, the Ventura City Council (at City Hall – California & Poli) will be taking four very important actions regarding the opening and operation of the year-round shelter/housing navigation center. The agreements with the County, city of Oxnard and with Mercy House (the center’s proposed operator) are on the agenda to be approved.
It’s important that you come!!!!!
We want to fill the room as a visual symbol of the importance of this shelter to the community in addressing our homelessness issues.
Wear BLUE if you can.
We’ll provide matching signs for you to use in thanking our council for their positive actions.
This time, we’re not asking for speakers, just for an enthusiastic group of supporters to be seen and be counted. Kevin and I will arrange for no more than 3 speakers to address the council.
There is now real data and there are real solutions for homelessness. For more information to share with friends, here are 3 significant talking points on housing, including the benefits of affordable rental housing, the state’s proposed budget impact, and how supportive housing reduces homelessness.
Thank you for your support!
Judy and Kevin
Co-Directors of Ventura Social Services Task Force
