Why are Safe Sleep Sites Being Established?
The number of people who are unsheltered in our community greatly exceeds the number of shelter beds and low-income housing units currently available – a situation that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Managed sites of this kind can reduce the impacts of unsanctioned camping in our community, as well as help people stabilize, making it easier for them to access needed services, and ultimately support their transition into better situations.
