The City of San Leandro strives to provide unhoused residents with critical and safety net services. However, the recent COVID-19 Omicron variant has created service delivery challenges. Additionally, on January 1, 2022, the San Leandro Police's (full-time) homeless outreach unit was reassigned to the patrol division due to low staffing levels. Below is a list of current and future services for unhoused residents: Current Services Available: • Winter Services Program (flyer attached): Provides basic needs (hot meals, clothing, gear for inclement weather, and hotel stays for those deemed most vulnerable by Building Futures with Women and Children) • Case Management with several agencies such as Building Futures, East Bay Innovations, April Showers, etc. • April Showers (free showers, clothes, food, haircuts, referrals/information for health care, social services, housing, jobs, and transportation). • Strategic Homeless Point-in-Time (PIT) count coordination to maximize opportunities for future funding to support services • Mental Health referrals to CARES Navigation Center, IHOT (In-Home Outreach Team), GART (Geriatric Assessment and Response Team), and AOT (Assisted Outpatient Treatment) Future Programs: • Homeless Navigation Center / Permanent Navigation Center with Supportive Housing • Safe Overnight RV Parking Lot/Zones For those seeking services: If you are seeking shelter and housing assistance, please call 211 to get referred to a Housing Resource Center. 24-hour, toll-free crisis line: 1-866-A-WAY-OUT 1-866-292-9688 OR Attend an April Showers event (San Leandro Boys and Girls Club on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sunday of the month between 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.)
