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.

Topic A CONUNDRUM: HELPING MENTALLY ILL HOMELESS PEOPLE

Featured Speaker: LaTina Jackson, Deputy Director at LA County Department of Mental Health

Members of our task force First Responders Committee report seeing more mentally ill homeless individuals on our streets, people who are so mentally ill that they can’t recognize or accept that they need help. Our November meeting will address this problem with speakers who work for the Department of Mental Health in their Homeless Outreach Mobile Engagement (HOME) teams. Join us to learn about the new DMH pilot program to help gravely disabled homeless individuals who refuse mental health services.
