HIGHLAND, Calif. – The San Bernardino County HOPE Team connected a homeless family with a newborn with the services necessary to get them off of the street on Tuesday.
During an outreach in the City of Highland, a citizen informed the HOPE team that a family with a newborn was living in the flood control area. With temperatures being over 100 degrees, the team began to search for the family. The family with their 7-day old baby was located in a secluded area with water and shade.
“ The family had the basic necessities to care for the child and a battery-operated cooling system for the infant,” Sheriff’s officials said. “The H.O.P.E. team in collaboration with a community provider was able to immediately connect the family with resources to ensure they did not remain on the streets.”
The Homeless Outreach and Proactive Enforcement (H.O.P.E.) program works with the homeless population to connect them with the resources needed to help them move beyond homelessness.
