CONTRA COSTA MEETING TO FOCUS ON HOMELESS STRATEGIES

A Contra Costa County official says an upcoming community meeting
will give the public a chance to comment on strategies to deal with
homelessness.

Keith Bussey of the Contra Costa County Homeless Program says the
Jan 8. meeting is being sponsored by Supervisor Mark DeSaulnier, the
Contra Costa County Continuum of Care Board and the county's homeless
program as part of an effort to come up with a comprehensive and
effective five-year plan.

County homeless program director Cynthia Belon said the whole
community is affected by the issue of homelessness and so should be
involved in developing ways to reduce it.

"Even though we are in an era of economic prosperity, there are
still limited resources to provide services for those in need," she
said.

The meeting next week is the fourth in a series of five being held
around the county to receive community ideas and is scheduled at the
Central County Family Shelter.

The final meeting in the series is scheduled on Jan. 31 in Walnut
Creek.
