Governor Newsom Concludes Statewide Homelessness Tour by Previewing State’s Accelerated Emergency Actions

Oakland, CA...After traveling the state this week meeting with individuals experiencing homelessness, service providers and local officials on the front lines of the crisis, Governor Gavin Newsom concluded his homelessness tour today in Oakland, where he previewed the state’s accelerated emergency actions to fight homelessness. Standing alongside local and state leaders and top administration officials, the Governor highlighted the first in a series of state-local partnerships to deploy travel trailers and medical services across California to assist individuals experiencing homelessness.




In Oakland, Governor Newsom highlights state-local partnerships to deploy travel trailers and medical services across California



“In every community I visited this week across the state, it’s clear that to be effective in tackling homelessness, we need partnership and collaboration across all levels of government and communities,” said Governor Newsom. “In cities big and small, rural and urban, coastal and inland, I met with legislators and local leaders from both parties who agree this isn’t a partisan issue. Solving homelessness matters to every Californian. That’s why we’re stepping up like never before and deploying resources across the state to help address this crisis head-on.”

Fifteen travel trailers and a medical services tent were delivered to a vacant city-owned lot in Oakland near the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum to showcase an example of the resources the state will be deploying to communities across California as part of the Governor’s executive order on homelessness, demonstrating state-local partnerships. The Governor has directed the Department of General Services to supply 100 camp trailers from the state fleet, and the Emergency Medical Services Authority to deploy modular tent structures, to provide temporary housing and delivery of health and social services across the state. These trailers will be made available to local partners to operate where certain criteria are met.

The Governor has released the full $650 million in State Emergency Homeless Aid – of which the City of Oakland will receive $19.7 million and the County of Alameda will receive $8.8 million – and issued a challenge for cities and counties to partner with the state on immediate impact solutions to tackle homelessness.

“Today shows us that a strong partner in Sacramento helps us move quickly in Oakland. Renovated trailers will not solve our crisis overnight but they will provide more safety, services, and critical care for our families right now,” said Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. “We will continue to work on fixing the systemic causes of homelessness and thank Governor Newsom for his partnership and leadership during this crisis.”

Governor Newsom today announced the launch of a new tool developed by California Volunteers to help everyday Californians meet the Governor’s challenge to do more to help people off the streets and into housing and services. As part of this effort, California Volunteers has developed a new webpage that lists volunteer opportunities with organizations that serve individuals experiencing homelessness.

The Governor kicked off the tour on Monday in Grass Valley, where he visited two homeless service providers and shelters, and county and city service providers. On Tuesday, the Governor visited Riverside and Los Angeles, first to emergency shelter and the Riverside Access Center, which provides access to a wide range of services under one roof, including homeless street outreach, housing placement, employment development, and homeless prevention resources. Later in Los Angeles, he visited staff and residents at a board and care home. Yesterday, the Governor was in Fresno visiting Exodus Recovery, Inc., which offers mental health services year-round to youth and adults experiencing a mental health crisis.

The Governor began the year by signing an executive order as part of a comprehensive state response to homelessness, including the creation of the California Access to Housing and Services Fund, expediting the availability of state land assets, and standing up a state crisis response team. The Governor’s action focuses on prevention and early intervention, moving people off the streets and providing them services, and creating new temporary housing to effectively reduce street homelessness.

In his State Budget proposal released Friday, Jan. 10, Governor Newsom formally announced more than $1 billion in homeless response funding, including $750 million for this new Access to Housing and Services Fund, and a major new investment to reform Medi-Cal so that health providers transform health care to deliver integrated physical and behavioral health.

Last year, the Governor signed 13 bills into law to help confront the homelessness crisis and others to fuel new housing development. In September, the Governor called on the Trump administration to increase federal investments in housing options for people experiencing homelessness and requested 50,000 additional Housing Choice Vouchers (HCVs) and Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) vouchers. In July, Governor Newsom announced regional leaders and statewide experts who will advise his Administration on solutions to address the state’s homelessness epidemic.

    Very sad and serious in the same breath. Don’t these people have family or friends? Why are they homeless to start with? Were they ever productive or had work skills of any type at all. Alcohol and drugs are my only guess and everyone they know turned against them. Gonna take some time, like putting a bandaid on a heart attack. Good luck.

      Have you looked at housing costs lately? Have you done the math to see how many minimum wage hours it takes to pay that rent?
      Maybe health problems, family or personal, limited their ability to work.
      Most of us are a disaster or two away from homelessness. Just look at the Butte fire.

      Due to circumstance in life not everyone has family to turn to. Ignorance of situations and lack of empathy cause these problems. People fall on hard times due to illness, family deaths, job loss, age, disability. I hate how people generalize everything. Do some research and analysis and consider yourself lucky I do. Ruthless people tend to do well but destroy all around them to get their success. Then sit alone when they are old in a retirement home because they have burned bridges have money but no social net.

      There are many stories and backgrounds. We have to be careful in our judgement of what others have experienced. I'm aware of a homeless gentleman in this area who has always been mentally disabled but lived with his mother, seemingly without other family in the area. When his mother passed, he was unable to keep a job, lost their home and ended up on the street. Alcohol, drugs and the homeless culture came next. Most of the time he's by the river in Tuolomne but wanders through Calaveras and the Route 4 corridor from time to time.

      The majority are mentally ill, unreachable by families without bringing harm on themselves. Though those who procreated them and their immediate families should be monetary responsible for them, when moving forward to addressing the danger they incur on the general public.

Many reasons for the homeless, male veterans, lost a job and couldn't pay their mortgage, our politicians property taxes coupled with our state taxes. Face it, Democrats stated in our last Presidential election that the First thing they WILL do is raise taxes.
I just had to point this out that newsom is giving freebies to illegals, free food, education, housing, healthcare and now 400,000 low income illegals will receive $27,000. Those ladies and gents are bought and paid for Democrat votes.

    Yeah when that news gets to and past our Southern border (which I heard on channel 10 last week) that should swell our detention centers and our population by a few million illegals in just a few months. Plus our Governor is going ahead with stealing water from up North and ship it South instead of building more storage, he's just going to steal it. Let's keep building, keep taking in illegals and criminals like the tax payers don't have enough on our plate. One year of low rainfall in this state and the cry of DROUGHT is heard up and down this entire state, and again all these Dumb-a-Craps do is steal the water.
    Happy New Year under dumbacraps logical thinking again.
    I can't wait until the sissy bold type up the butt leech off the tax payer guy wakes up and tells me to move to Montana comes on here.

Most of these people are whin's, drug addicts, they will trash these trailer's, the only reason Gavin the Libtard jumped into action is that Trump embarrassed his gay butt, and told him to get something done or the Feds we're coming in to take care of it! Homelessness is caused by many reasons, but the biggest one is addiction, started on pot and moved on to the needle, FACT! Tired of putting up with this never ending problem, VOTE REPUBLICAN!

    The insanity of Newsom is inconceivable. The state will shortly become bankrupt, as he drives out all companies and individuals who can't afford the taxes to pay for this. Much of the state has already became lawless.

What???? Your clean needles program didn’t work Gavin??? Inconceivable!!! You MORON!!! Get a grip and get these people off of drugs. Mental illness is one thing but every state documentary quotes drugs as the number one problem with homeless people and their homeless tent cities. A 2 year old could do your job better than you Gavin A$$HOLE Newsome!!!!!!!

    Way to hate Calaveras. Is this being good Christians?

    Many people lost homes in the Butte fire. The board of Supervisors could have done far more to facilitate rebuilding, but instead obsessed over a cannabis ban. They could have waived permit fees, and helped people. Instead they raised fees and created more barriers.

      You will never get those people who were living off the land in their illegal (no county taxes) shacks to ever build a home.

      It's bad enough that they received FEMA money for their illegal shacks and just continue to sit there doing nothing for themselves. Their hands are still out for more.

Creating more of this is just a really bad idea.
