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.
For more information regarding the Task Force on Homelessness, please call (805) 583-6759. Interested organizations and individuals are encouraged to sign up for e-notify to receive email information, variances in meeting dates, and to stay informed regarding current and future updates.
