This year, Santa Monica began to inventory their resident homeless population to find the most vulnerable and high-risk in order to begin intensive services and help get them off the street. 131 were found and so far, 51 one of them are off the streets as of November. 18 of those are now in permanent housing (14%) and the other 33 (25%) are in temporary housing. Another homeless census is coming up in January and Santa Monica is looking for volunteers. For more details on volunteering, check here.
