Press Release

MARTINEZ – Have you ever wondered about the issue of homelessness? Do you want to learn more about the problem regionally and in Martinez? Do you want to learn more about what the City is doing to address the issue and do you have any thoughts or ideas? Would you like to know what you can do to help?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we would urge you to attend our Homelessness Forum on November 7, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the Martinez Junior High School Performing Arts Center. We previously hosted this event in May of this year and had a fantastic turnout. For all those that want current information or weren’t able to attend, we highly encourage you to participate.

The forum will have a panel of experts from Contra Costa County and the City of Martinez to provide an overview of the problem and answer questions. Residents, business owners, stakeholders, and anyone interested in learning more are all welcome to attend.

Homelessness is a complex problem and it affects our community. Learn more about the issue, interact with stakeholders and residents, join our discussion, and work together to build a stronger Martinez.

Speakers include the Martinez Police Department; Contra Costa County Services such as Health, Housing, and Homeless Services, CORE Program, and Health Care for the Homeless; Martinez Unified School District; Loaves & Fishes, and The Bay Church

This forum is sponsored by the City of Martinez and the discussion will be moderated by Vice Mayor Gipner. For the forum flyer, click HERE. If you have any questions regarding this forum, please contact Rica Guidry, Executive Assistant to the City Manager at (925) 372-3505.
