Sheriff's HOPE Team Conducts Outreach Operation in Yucaipa and the Surrounding Area

DATE/TIME: January 6, 2023 / 6:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

INCIDENT: Outreach Operation

LOCATION: Yucaipa City/Surrounding Unincorporated Area

SUMMARY: On Friday, January 6, 2023, from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Community Service & Reentry Division, Homeless Outreach Proactive Enforcement Team (HOPE) conducted a quality-of-life operation in the city of Yucaipa and surrounding unincorporated community. The goal of the operation was to connect with unhoused residents and offer them services such as housing, medical and mental health treatment and other social services. 

The HOPE Team located six encampments and spoke with twenty individuals experiencing homelessness. Seventeen were provided with referrals to programs for assistance and six were provided with direct assistance. Three people were connected to housing programs for long-term assistance.

The team was able to provide this focused outreach due to Senate Bill 170, which provided funding to the Department to support ongoing operations of this nature. The HOPE team and other aligned resources will continue operations of this type throughout the county over the next several years.

If you know of someone experiencing homelessness who are in need of services, please contact the HOPE team at 909-387-0623 or [email protected]
