SAN ANTONIO (February 10, 2020) – The City of San Antonio Department of Human Services, in conjunction with the South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless (SARAH), has partnered with Homebase/Center for Common Concerns to conduct an assessment of the current homeless response system, perform a gap analysis, and help develop a 5- to 10-year Homeless Strategic Plan to enhance the City’s current efforts.


As part of the process, local residents are invited to provide input on the strategic planning process during a series of community forums. Four forums were held last week.


Two additional forums will be held this week. The schedule is shown below. Both sessions are from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the date indicated:


Monday, February 10
Palo Alto College/Ozuna Library (Legacy Ballroom, Room 101)
1400 W. Villaret, 78224


Tuesday, February 11
Elvira Cisneros Senior Community Center
517 S.W. Military Drive, 78221


“Homelessness is a complex issue and can be difficult to understand. Ending homelessness is not an easy task. Everyone in the community has a role to play, and we need bring our community together to better understand the problem,” District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran said. “We invite you to come out, and have these discussions as we work together to put a plan into action to solve homelessness. Together, we can make sure that San Antonio’s values and vision are represented and that your voices are heard to make a safer, stronger community.”
