Coming Together For A Future Study On The Unhoused Population
The Paso Robles Unhoused Population Futures Study is currently underway and supported by a diverse group of twenty individuals passionate about helping their community. They are behavioral and mental health workers, bankers, winery owners, relators, hoteliers, and even the executive director of our local homeless shelter. These community members have come together to work with the Paso Robles Chamber on this study.
Studies like the Paso Robles Unhoused Population Futures Study are robust, holistic, and systematic ways to evaluate how past and present events have impacted trends related to a challenge. As we learn historically how events and trends became interconnected, we can anticipate how future events may or may not shape trends moving forward. From this understanding, the study can develop realistic future scenarios regarding homelessness that can be used to support the city’s next steps moving forward.
By coming together, we can support those experiencing homelessness, and the Paso Robles Unhoused Population Futures Study will help inform the next steps we can take to help.
