The City’s Encampment Team proactively addresses the health, safety, and environmental concerns associated with encampments. The Team is comprised of various City departments who work in coordination with the City’s contracted outreach provider, Catholic Charities’ Homeless Outreach Services Team (HOST). City protocols prioritize outreach and offering services to individuals residing in encampments prior to any enforcement action. While in-the-field, the Team evaluates health, safety, and environmental risks posed by the encampments; enforces laws where appropriate; removes trash/debris; and contacts HOST for individuals seeking services and shelter. Encampments that pose an immediate threat to health and safety are given the highest priority. More information about the City’s encampment resolution efforts is available on the City’s website under Encampment Resolution.
