COMMUNITY MEETINGS

The Task Force hosts bimonthly forums to connect with the Palisades community. At each meeting, we answer questions, solicit ideas, provide progress updates, and convene experts to address the pressing issues related to homelessness. These meetings are discussion opportunities - not lectures - and we appreciate every contribution.  The ideas debated here ultimately turn into concrete solutions, whether it's a Panhandling Policy or partnerships with local agencies.

 

Our efforts are only as strong as the community that supports them, so we encourage all to attend, whether they're new to the issue or have engaged with it for years.

Upcoming Virtual Meeting

Topic: ENDING THE "OFF & ON" STREET CYCLE OF
SEVERELY MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE

Monday, May 24th, 2021 | 7 PM PST via Zoom

CLICK HERE TO PRE-REGISTER

Featured Speaker:
Dr. Jonathan Sherin
M.D., Ph.D.

Director of Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health

We see severely mentally ill homeless people on our streets where law enforcement or paramedic assistance is required. We hear that these individuals were put on a “5150” hold. They disappear only to return a few days later in the same or worse condition. This is the disturbing “Off & On” street cycle that increasing numbers of our mentally ill homeless people must endure and so must the communities in which they live.  
 
Please join us to hear from Dr. Jonathan Sherin, who will discuss pathways to ending this painful, destructive cycle through stratifying the homeless population, policy reform, and collective action.

 

When you register for the meeting, help us by submitting questions and comments in advance. Let us know what you want to know! PacPaliHTF@gmail.com
