The Californer/10233846

Long Beach, CA ~ The City of Long Beach has launched a survey to gain insight into the community's knowledge and perceptions of homelessness in the city. The survey is available in English, Spanish, Khmer and Tagalog and seeks feedback to inform City resources, services and response efforts.

Mayor Rex Richardson said, "To meet the challenge of homelessness, it's important to listen and understand the needs of our residents as we measure our community's progress. We want to hear your voice and get feedback through this survey. We're all in this together."

The survey includes questions related to affordable housing availability, community concerns, City resources and services offered, evaluation of the City's response efforts, among others. Results from the survey will be used to further inform the City's response to the homelessness crisis, help guide allocation of resources to address homelessness, and ensure City messaging about homelessness resources is addressing community concerns and information gaps.
