City Net and the City of La Habra formed a partnership in 2016 to address homelessness in the community. City Net has worked closely with the La Habra Police Department, La Habra Collaborative, La Habra Community Resource and Care Center (CRCC), and the faith community to develop this collaborative effort to help the homeless. City Net’s homeless outreach team partners up weekly with LHPD’s Homeless Liaison Officers and staff from the La Habra CRCC to conduct street outreach and provide collaborative case management to individuals and families in need.

La Habra police, in partnership with the homeless collaborative City Net, wants to provide a long-term solution for the city’s homeless — an effort that takes much coordination, resources and patience.
“This is everyone working together with a shared goal of helping people get off the streets,” said Gigi Zanganeh, program director for City Net. “It takes an army to help one person. At a minimum, it takes four agencies to help a person get off the streets.”
