COMBATTING 
HOMELESSNESS

The homelessness crisis cannot be resolved without addressing housing supply and acknowledging that homes are what solve homelessness.

BALANCED SYSTEM.

While homelessness is a complex humanitarian crisis with many influencing factors, there is one indisputable solution we know works: homes. In 2021, 277 people (214 households) who were formerly homeless in Pasadena were permanently housed through programs operated in Pasadena and other parts of the County.

Permanent Housing

The homelessness crisis cannot be resolved without addressing housing supply and acknowledging that homes are what solve homelessness.

Homelessness Prevention

Prevention initiatives are a necessary component of an effective homeless services system to ensure people are able to remain in their homes and avoid a destabilizing housing crisis.

Emergency Shelter

Low-barrier emergency shelter is necessary to protect and ensure the safety of our unhoused neighbors while connecting them to essential services and permanent housing.

Services & Engagement

The Department of Housing, with increased local and state funding, has expanded investments in critical services to address homelessness in our city.
