Sheriff's Department's HOPE Team Conducts Quality of Life Operation in Rancho Cucamonga and Assists Numerous Unhoused Residents

DATE/TIME: March 17, 2023 / 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

INCIDENT: Outreach Operation

LOCATION: City of Rancho Cucamonga 



SUMMARY: On Friday, March 17, 2023, from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Community Service & Reentry Division, Homeless Outreach Proactive Enforcement Team (H.O.P.E.) conducted a quality-of-life operation in the city of Rancho Cucamonga. 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 spoke with 17 individuals experiencing homelessness. All 17 were provided with referrals to programs for assistance and seven were provided with direct assistance. 

HOPE Team members worked alongside Deputy D. Moreno from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department's Solutions Oriented Policing Team (S.O.P.). Together, the team worked with a female experiencing homelessness and was reunited with her family. One veteran experiencing homelessness was connected with a veteran service and one senior that met the criteria for Project RoomKey was placed into a housing program where he will be given resources to end his homelessness. 

The team was able to provide this focused outreach due to Senate Bill 170, which provided funding to the Sheriff's 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 persons experiencing homelessness who are in need of services, please contact the HOPE team at 909-387-0623 or [email protected]
