To Social Service Providers:
In 1999, the Simi Valley City Council appointed a 19-member Task Force on Homelessness comprised of representatives from City, County, non-profit organizations, and the community-at-large to study the issue of homelessness. The City’s Task Force guidelines included, in part, gathering information on the agencies that are providing services to the homeless and how the homeless may access these services. As part of this research, the Task Force on Homelessness Directory of Social Services was developed and is also available online at www.simivalley.org/socialservicesdirectory. The City’s Task Force on Homelessness continues to address the issue of homelessness, and in 2007, the City Council expanded its commitment to ending and preventing homelessness in Simi Valley consistent with the Ventura County 10-Year Strategy to End Homelessness.
We hope that this Directory will assist you in linking citizens to helpful services and resources. If you have any additions, or corrections to this document, please contact the Task Force on Homelessness Coordinator at (805) 583-6759, so that revisions can be made on the website and to any future publication of this resource.
On behalf of the City Council, thank you for your valuable contribution of time and energy in assisting the citizens of Simi Valley.
Robert O. Huber Mayor
