The Task Force on Homelessness was established by the City Council in 1999 to address the issue of homelessness in Simi Valley.  The Task Force provides policy recommendations to the City Council to assist in developing the community's response to homelessness.  The Task Force is comprised of representatives from the City Council, regional and local services providers, and government agencies providing services to individuals experiencing and at risk of homelessness.

The Task Force meets quarterly.  All Task Force meetings are open to the public. Information for upcoming meetings is available below.  Those interested in receiving meeting and other information related to the Task Force's efforts can sign up to receive email notifications.  For information provided at the meetings, please refer to the Resources and Referrals page.

Additionally, City staff represents the City through involvement with the Ventura County Continuum of Care to ensure that the City's efforts take into account regional efforts and federal policies to maximize effectiveness.  The Continuum of Care coordinates the regional Point In Time Count and prepared a brief summary of the findings to detail the state of homelessness in Ventura County.

Temporary Closure of the Simi Valley Adoption Center

April 4 to April 9

Ventura County Animal Services (VCAS) will temporarily close the Simi Valley Adoption Center to remodel their kennel area, from Monday, April 4th to Friday, April 8th.  To save room at the Camarillo Campus, VCAS will need to get as many pets adopted or fostered before construction begins on Monday.  The remaining animals will be transported to Camarillo for temporary housing.  During the closure, please take all stray and owner surrendered pets to the Camarillo Campus , located at 600 Aviation Drive.  VCAS will also institute an "Urgent Pet Promotion," where all dogs and cats from the Simi Valley Center and all Pit Bull type dogs at the Camarillo Campus will be fee-waived until April 30th.  For more information, please visit the VCAS website by clicking here or by calling (805) 388-4341.
