480_the-world-is-changing_1.jpg
by Santa Cruz City Councilmember Drew Glover
A lot has been happening recently in the City of Santa Cruz, California related to homelessness. After years of criminalizing homelessness and constantly shuffling people from place to place, the City has started to look at proven options that help people experiencing homeless receive the services they need as well as permanent supportive housing. Transitional Encampments, safe-sleeping, and safe-parking programs are tactics that have made an impact in North-Western cities like Eugene, Portla...

by Alicia Kuhl (reposted)
Opening up a safe sleep located in lot #24 near Depot Park in Santa Cruz is causing an outrage from neighbors and concerned citizens. A safe sleep spot does not meet shelter criteria, and is not good for anyone. Your concerns about this are totally logical, it will force people to find a place to exist during the daytime hours in that area....

Regular watchdog readers of "Ben Dover" and his "Weekly Dump" column published by the Santa Mierda Network are acutely aware of his hateful rants levied against homeless people struggling to survive in Santa Cruz. Following Tuesday night's Santa Cruz City Council meeting, however, "Ben" went ballistic. He was reacting to council's decision to locate a new city sanctioned homeless camp downtown at Lot 24 next to Depot Park. Here's the dig for Ben: the homeless camp, once established, will be d...
