Deadline nearing for community input on Garden Grove’s Plan to address homelessness

The City of Garden Grove continues to seek community input on the Draft Comprehensive Strategic Plan to Address Homelessness (CSPAH) to plan for the short- and long-term impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and explore different programs and solutions for homelessness. The online survey, available in multiple languages, can be accessed at ggcity.org/endhomelessness until Monday, May 31, 2021.

The Draft CSPAH was presented to the Garden Grove City Council at the January 26, 2021 Regular City Council Meeting. The Final CSPAH will be presented to the Garden Grove City Council this summer for adoption.
The City has also created the Garden Grove Coalition to End Homelessness (GGCEH) comprised of City representatives, residents, religious leaders, nonprofits, community leaders, and businesses. GGCEH is a comprehensive approach to stabilize, navigate, support, and assist families and individuals experiencing homelessness or at-risk of becoming homeless.

GGCEH will hold its first meeting on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 4:00 p.m., via Zoom or by phone, to review survey results and share ideas on how to end homelessness in Garden Grove. The community is encouraged to join GGCEH and register for the meeting by visiting ggcity.org/endhomelessness.
