Pico Rivera and the local Sheriff’s department are in a position to utilize state, local and non- profit resources to benefit both residents and the homeless. Homeless outreach, housing placement and counseling efforts are currently underway but efforts should be doubled to make a lasting impact that we all can be proud of. Most recently, the Sheriff’s homeless taskforce was slashed in half. Not a good idea during a pandemic. I pledge to review city funding allocations for homelessness and push for more funding.
