Homeless in Santa Monica Start Getting Off Streets
Back in January, Santa Monica officials went out to conduct a homeless census within their oceanside city. 266 were found, but 107 were found to be "vulnerable," which was defined by examining their length of time spent on the street, age, physical and mental health condition.
Those identified as such were then put on the city's Chronic Homeless Project Service Registry so they could receive "intensive services." Now, five are permanently house and another eight are in temporary shelters.
