SAN BERNARDINO – The Sheriff’s Homeless Outreach and Proactive Enforcement (HOPE) team, which offers a variety of services to the San Bernardino County homeless population was approved by the Board of Supervisors to add one additional deputy last week.

The HOPE team offers a pro-active program which offers resources to help each group of individuals to help them transition for homelessness when they are ready to do so.
In order to promote private and federal funding volunteers, as well as several organizations, go into the streets of San Bernardino County searching for homeless individuals and families. Many of those in the groups bring along resources, water, snacks, socks, and other items that may be helpful to those they make contact with. Although not all can be located and counted, the count gives a glimpse of the magnitude of the issue enabling the organization to receive grants to assist them in their transition into sustained self-sufficiency.
The county is still seeking volunteers for the Point-in-Time Count. Click here and complete the registration form to be a volunteer. For additional information, email Michele Bletcher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
