Our Approach

The City of Stanton employs two full-time Homeless Outreach Coordinators, providingPhoto_Maria - Copy - Copy daily two-person coverage to engage with individuals who are experiencing homelessness in Stanton.     

Assessments are made using a standardized assessment process as a road map to customize the needs of the individual and their unique circumstances and eventually match them with further supportive services conducted by various regional partners.  

Our priority is a consistent and transparent process for matching individuals and families to the most appropriate linkages to services and housing resources through the County’s Coordinated Entry System. Referrals include a warm hand-off between access point providers and housing or supportive service providers. 

Photo_Outreach 2 - CopyThe North Service Planning Area, made up of 13 cities (Stanton, Anaheim, Brea, Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, La Habra, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Orange, Villa Park, and Yorba Linda), collectively agreed to share the cost and operations of two navigation centers in the cities of Placentia and Buena Park, largely through grant funds under California’s Homeless Emergency Aid Program and certain additional funds made available under Senate Bill 2.

Agreement of this venture is based on the local mandate by U.S. District Federal Judge David Carter requiring work on a homeless housing plan for the region, which includes the two Navigation Centers that would provide an array of supportive services including mental health, substance abuse, vocational and housing services. The City of Stanton, under this mandate to comply, will maintain local control over enforcement of its own anti-camping ordinance in public areas, including public sidewalks, city hall, libraries, parks, and neighborhood sidewalks.
