Governor Newsom Announces Regional Leaders & Statewide Experts who will Advise on Solutions to Combat Homelessness

Sacramento, CA... Governor Gavin Newsom today announced the names of the regional leaders and statewide experts who will advise the Administration on solutions to address the state’s homelessness epidemic. Once convened, these leaders will join Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas in meetings across the state to assist local governments in crafting their regional strategies to address homelessness, with a particular focus on homelessness prevention and early intervention. Recent homeless data shows the cost crisis is a major driver of homelessness as many Californians struggle to afford rent. As the state invests historic amounts of money in homelessness, including for shelters and mental health services, there remains a great need to slow or stop the in-flow of people becoming homeless in the first place.




The Governor also announced plans to appoint working groups of other regional leaders, service providers, formerly homeless people and academics around specific geographies or issues affecting homelessness, to work in collaboration with these advisors. These working groups may include experts on mental health, street homelessness or rural homelessness. Selection of working groups will be made in the coming weeks.

The group announced it will hold its first three regional convenings in the months ahead: August in the Central Valley, September in Southern California and October in Northern California. Exact dates, locations and working group presenters will be announced closer to the meeting times.

“It’s time we stop talking about the homelessness crisis and start acting,” said Governor Newsom. “This is a crisis that affects all of California – from rural and urban communities to coastal and inland cities. We need to work collectively to source local solutions from mayors, county supervisors and city councils and implement those solutions at scale statewide.”

The full list of advisors includes seven elected officials and six institutional representatives:

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, Co-Chair
Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, Co-Chair
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf
Fresno City Councilmember Esmeralda Soria
San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher
Riverside County Supervisor V. Manuel Perez
Arcata City Councilmember Sofia Pereira
County Welfare Directors Association of California Executive Director Frank Mecca
Corporation for Supportive Housing Associate Director Sharon Rapport
Western Center on Law and Poverty Policy Advocate Anya Lawler
County Behavioral Health Directors Association Executive Director Michelle Cabrera
Former U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness Director Philip Mangano
Former Department of Social Services Director Will Lightbourne
“I want to thank Governor Newsom for assembling some of the best minds in the state to find solutions to the gravest social, economic and public safety problem we face. Our challenge is not only to identify the best ways to house those who are currently homeless, but also find a way to staunch the flow of thousands of people becoming homeless in California each year,” said Mayor Steinberg.

The advisors will examine best practices relating to prevention, diversion and intervention, as well as guide local governments as they develop regional plans to address homelessness.

“I look forward to partnering with Governor Gavin Newsom, Mayor Darrell Steinberg, and other regional leaders and experts to ensure that the State of California steps up in strategic ways to confront this deepening and dynamic crisis,” said Supervisor Ridley-Thomas. “It is time for all levels of government to intensify our efforts, and take urgent swift and consistent action to combat homelessness.”

Last month, the Governor signed his first state budget, which includes a historic $1 billion investment in the fight against homelessness. In May, Governor Newsom visited Oakland with Mayor Steinberg and Supervisor Ridley-Thomas, where he met with formerly homeless individuals and underscored the importance of state-local partnerships to combat homelessness. Advisors will consult with local and regional governments around the state to assess best practices and strategies to increase the production of Navigation Centers, positive housing exits and information sharing.

And somehow these phony shamful republicans that still decide to live here in ca will find a way to spin this one negatively as usual. No matter what gavin does they complain even if it benifits everyone and benefits the state as well, and they call us cry babies. Get ready for some pine nutters!

      Why is it that there was no homeless problem in California until Democrats took over Sacramento?

        Hey, he's our governor.
        You don't like it, leave.
        Go back to the state your family, or you, came from.
        He's trying to make CA great again.

          We are generational Californians here. It is you the transplants who brought the wrath of the so called homeless upon us in California. Use your own money, not ours, to fix your problem.

          Because of you and your problems, many generational Californian families who built this state have been and are leaving. This is exactly why it is beginning to cave in upon you. You will not be safe here anymore.

    You fools are the ones who have brought this problem upon our state, calling all the homeless here to California with your offers of free stuff. Now that you have more than any other state and can see the error of your ways, are you admitting you made a grave mistake? You can't help people who won't help themselves. The homeless need to be kept moving and looking for jobs. If they won't work they need to be left to natural selection, not given free housing and food on the taxpayers dime. The first place public money needs to be spent is to build asylums to house the mentally ill, to stop them from harming the general public.

      The trump administration never mentioned the word homelessness. It’s not good for the base.
