On February 8, the Coastside Outpatient Mental Health Clinic participated in a homeless service day, coordinated by the City of Half Moon Bay and the Human Services Agency.

A heavily populated homeless encampment behind the Safeway in Half Moon Bay will be closed by early April. In contrast to other cities that have quickly removed homeless encampments with little notice, Half Moon Bay is taking a planned, phased approach. The goal of the service day was to connect homeless individuals on site to services to support them through this transition.

There were over 27 individual service providers and 14 county agencies and departments, including the Homeless Outreach Team, Adult Resource Management, Coastside Hope and San Mateo Medical Center. Read more
