Homeless Prevention Services
City of Upland Homeless Stakeholders Team
In 2013, the City of Upland organized community members to form a Homeless Stakeholders Team. This team is comprised of individuals and organizations that have a desire to help the community and see a positive change in the city, specifically as it relates to those affected by homelessness. Upland community organizations such as: Foothill Family Shelter, Pacific Lifeline, Upland Unified School District, Upland Housing Authority, Upland Four Square Church, Rivers Edge Church, St. Josephs Church, as well as individuals who are currently homeless. This partnership with city staff from Development Services, Parks and Recreation, and the Police Department are committed to the mission to establish realistic strategies, make tangible recommendations, and foster community oriented relationships that address the needs of the Upland community, residents, businesses, and the homeless. The team is working hand in hand with organizations throughout the county of San Bernardino, including the Department of Homeless Services and being one of the first city police departments to partner with the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department’s H.O.P.E. Team (Homeless Outreach Proactive Enforcement) to learn and implement the best practices from surrounding communities.
To really impact something that affects our whole community, we need our whole community involved. Our team meets the third Tuesday of each month downstairs in the Carnegie Building at 6:00 p.m.
