HOMELESS PERSPECTIVE LIVE BREAKING NEWS – January 22, 2021

L.A. County Homeless Mortality Report – Novato Homeless Encampment – Sacramento Safe Grounds

Hosted By: Tim Houchen
January 22, 2021 —

In tonight’s breaking homeless news stories – a recent homeless mortality report from Los Angeles County finds that overdose deaths among the county’s homeless, especially those deaths involving fentanyl, have increased during the pandemic. L.A. County Public Health also announced some of the immediate steps that the department will take to expand harm reduction policies to include additional distribution of naloxone and fentanyl test strips.

In Marin County, the City of Novato has cleared a homeless encampment this week that was located on a vacant property that the city had intended to sell. AB 1486, a state law signed in 2019, requires the city to prioritize negotiations with buyers who plan to build housing, school facilities, parks or open space before placing its surplus property on the open market. So. The city may have jumped the gun and may have also violated the rights of some homeless campers there.

And, the Sacramento City Council voted to approve a temporary emergency “safe grounds” ordinance. Sacramento Mayor, Darrell Steinberg, wants to place 63 tiny homes on properties currently occupied by homeless encampments over the next 30 days.

Plus, stories that you will find trending at the HOMELESS PERSPECTIVE website are a new low-income housing project in L.A. made from shipping containers is showing how affordable housing can be built quickly and inexpensively.

You will also find an article written by myself that calls for immediate action to distribute additional naloxone overdose kits and fentanyl test strips to our homeless brothers and sisters who struggle with opioid addiction and are at-risk of death by overdose every time they use without the needed tools that would help them to identify the presence of fentanyl in their street dope and the drug naloxone that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.
