While housing gains continue to be achieved among the chronically homeless and youth, San Bernardino County’s 2018 Point-In-Time Count revealed increases in homelessness.

Overall, data collected on January 25, 2018 tells us that there are 2,118 homeless people living in San Bernardino County up from 1,866 in 2017, a 13.5 percent increase of 252 newly homeless individuals.

This past year, more than 140 chronically homeless people with mental health issues have been housed.

In July 2015, the Board of Supervisors held a special session on efforts to reduce the homeless veteran population.

In August 2016, the board once again held a special session resolving to reduce the population of chronically homeless in the county. As of March 2018, through the board’s initiative on homeless veterans, 1,128 veterans and families were successfully housed in our County.
