Homeless Response Resource Guide:

In collaboration with the Community Development, Public Works, and the Police Department, the Human Services Department has developed a Homeless Response Resource Guide to support needs associated with the increase of unhoused neighbors in San Leandro.  This document contains thorough contact information and instructions in response to a variety of situations.  Who to contact, depending on the context and location, is very important as we leverage our community partners and our knowledgeable staff in each department.  This Guide will support internal coordination efforts, while providing information and resources to our businesses and residents.
