Berkeley Homeless Task Force

MISSION:   

The Berkeley Homeless Task Force is a community-led process bringing together service providers, homeless persons, students, business owners, and the broader community to identify challenges towards addressing homelessness and to develop a plan for improved services, housing opportunities and other programs to serve Berkeley's homeless population. Established in the summer of 2013, the goal of the task force is to bring stakeholders together to discuss common goals and to develop a community vision towards addressing homelessness. The Task Force will develop a report to the Berkeley City Council with program, policy and funding recommendations to improve services to the homeless.  

All Task Force meetings are open to the public and everyone is encouraged to participate. The Homeless Task Force meets at the North Berkeley Senior Center at 1901 Hearst Avenue in Berkeley. 

Upcoming 2014 Homeless Task Force meeting dates are: 

Monday, November 17th at 6:30pm (Health Room) 

Monday, December 15th at 6:30pm (Multipurpose Room)
