Quality of Life

LBPFDonateToday200The Quality of Life Program assists in facilitating services, resources and protection for the homeless in Long Beach. The program was founded in 2007 by the Long Beach Police Department in an effort to impact vagrancy related crimes, reduce the number of calls for service related to the homeless population, and to seek long term solutions for these issues. The Quality of Life Unit consists of a police officer and a mental health clinician that work to reduce crime in and around the homeless community through street outreach. With resources provided by the Long Beach Police Foundation and other community partners, the team serves as a liaison to connect homeless individuals to non-government agency services, community support groups, housing resources, transportation and mental health services. The Quality of Life Team also provide training to police officers and outside agencies on alternative methods for addressing homeless related issues. The program is primarily funded through grants and individual contributions.[/one_half]
