The following was handed out in hard copy to each person at the Memorial on December 20th.


Santa Cruz County
2016 Annual Report on Homeless Deaths
Summary of available data on homeless deaths in Santa Cruz County
For the period December 21, 2015 – December 19, 2016

Homeless Persons’ Health Project (HPHP)
A program of the Santa Cruz County Health Services Agency

Background:
In keeping with a tradition established in 1999, once again this year on December 20th homeless individuals, community, family members, and homeless service providers will come together to honor the lives of those who died while homeless this year. The 2016 Annual Report on Homeless Deaths and our local homeless memorial event represent our community’s eighteenth year of collecting data and reporting on homeless deaths across the county. Our memorial is one of many occurring across the nation to mark the beginning of winter, a time when the dire consequences of homelessness are most starkly evident.

Discussion of 2016 Homeless Deaths:
Based on all reported deaths, the total number of people who died while homeless this year in Santa Cruz County is 37. The total number of homeless deaths reported in 2015 was 38, and the average number of homeless deaths per year over the preceding ten years (2006-20015) was 34.6. The average age at death for 2016 was 51.5, which is the same as the average age of death for homeless individuals in Santa Cruz County during the previous ten-year period. The average life expectancy for all Americans is 78.8 and this means that people who die while homeless in our community die 27 years earlier than might otherwise be expected.

More than half the deaths reported this year (51%) were directly linked to substance use and addiction. Nearly one third of the deaths (12 of 37) were the result of acute alcohol or drug overdoses. Another 19% were caused by the effects of chronic alcohol addiction including end stage liver disease and GI bleeding. Trauma was another major cause of death (14%) among homeless individuals, including two people killed when struck by motor vehicles, two suicides, and one homicide. Four people (11%) died from heart disease, five more people from infections (three from pneumonia and two from sepsis), and two people from lung cancer. Sixteen people (43%) died outdoors or in a vehicle, and another died in a storage container. Eleven people (30%) died in a hospital or other medical facility. Four people (11%) died in a shelter or transitional housing. At least six of those who died (16%) were U.S. military veterans.

One fact is well documented – Homelessness causes, complicates and exacerbates serious health problems and it leads to the premature deaths of thousands of people in communities across our nation every year. The longer homelessness is endured, the greater the impact on health. Research in the U.S. has shown that homeless persons have up to a threefold increase in mortality when compared to the general population, (Hibbs1994). Studies document an average age of death among homeless populations that ranges from 42 to 52 years, while average life expectancy for most Americans is almost 80 (O’Connell, 2005).
How data on homeless deaths are collected:
Throughout the year, a public health nurse at HPHP maintains a log of deaths that occur among people who are homeless in Santa Cruz County. The log includes information on confirmed deaths of HPHP clients, as well as confirmed reports of deaths received from other homeless service organizations, medical providers, the Coroner’s office, the County Office of Vital Statistics, the County Public Administrator’s office and friends or family members of those who have died.
The data available from this process most likely under-represent the number of homeless deaths in the county. Housing status at the time of death is neither well documented nor always easily determined. Also, information on likely factors leading to death is imprecise, and the cause can be unknown at the time of death. For the sake of summarizing the information, we have assigned a single primary contributing factor to each death, but in many cases, there are multiple, significant factors that have contributed to an individual’s death.
For this reason the data provided in this summary should not be interpreted as a definitive accounting of deaths among the homeless population in our county. Instead, this reflects our best effort at this time to collect and analyze accurate data on homeless deaths in a way that is meaningful to our community, to homeless service providers, and to friends and family of those who have died.

About the Memorial:
Our purpose in preparing and distributing this report at this time of year is three-fold: first, to honor and mark the passing of all those who died while homeless in our community during the last year; second, to document and increase awareness of the serious and negative impact of homelessness on the lives of our fellow community members; and finally, to reflect on and to re-commit ourselves to the work that is left to be done in our community to prevent so many unnecessarily and unjustly early deaths each year.

Our memorial service includes a reading of the names of the 37 people who were homeless at death and are reflected in our annual report. We will also read the names of an additional 15 individuals who were previously homeless and died this year, but who were either out of county, or housed at the time of their death. Many of these individuals were homeless for long periods of time before entering housing. We invite people to add names to our list that we have overlooked. During the memorial we will display the approximately 650 names of all those who have been memorialized since our first memorial in December 1999.

Nearly all of the people who died were personally known to one of us at the River Street Shelter, at the Homeless Services Center, at HPHP or to one of our colleagues at homeless service organizations in Watsonville or in other parts of the county. We are sometimes shocked and always saddened by their deaths. Each person who died will be missed. We hope that this information will serve to honor the memory of each person, to guide us in our ongoing efforts to improve the health and quality of life for all who experience homelessness, and to recommit ourselves as a community to ending homelessness in Santa Cruz County.

Dear Homeless Memorial Project,

Thank you for doing this and having a website. I am sorry to see that Charles Joseph Stock passed away. I knew him from when I lived in Santa Cruz. I always made it a point to talk with him when I was in the downtown area and I did what I could do for him. He was a good guy and it's unfortunate that he passed away. I was always hoping to get back to Santa Cruz and be able to talk with him again. He might be gone but I definitely won't forget him and he definitely made my experiences in the downtown area that much better.

Also, can maybe someone from this project contact me. I would really appreciate it too. Thanks.
