In November 2017, the Temecula City Council approved an agreement with City Net for a one-year pilot program to lead collaborative efforts with city departments and local nonprofit organizations in attempts to reduce homelessness in the city by 33 percent.
As part of its contract with Temecula, City Net will engage in services to reach out to unsheltered homeless neighbors in the city, connect them with emergency shelter, housing, or critical services and provide urgent, non-facility-based care.
City Net has worked in north Orange County since 2014 to help thousands of homeless neighbors to obtain appropriate supportive services, including assistance in obtaining permanent housing, medical health treatment, mental health treatment, counseling, supervision, and other services essential for achieving independent living; housing stability case management; and access to other Federal, State, local, or private assistance available to assist homeless neighbors in obtaining housing stability.
Overall, more than 1,400 homeless neighbors have exited the streets through the collaborative efforts led by City Net and hundreds of regional service provider partners, with a retention rate of 93% after 12 months.
