Homelessness Steering Committee

Back in June 2017, the Santa Monica Homeless Steering Committee (SMHSC) was created to leverage the strengths of Santa Monica’s community solutions network. The committee is a gathering of more than 50 individuals who live or work in Santa Monica, representing residents, business associations, faith partners, local and regional service providers, regional elected officials, City Council, City departments, people with lived experience and other local associations impacted by homelessness.
