The Challenge 


Homelessness has become an increasing problem in the Nation, State, Riverside County and here in the City of Corona. Through cooperation among city staff, volunteers, nonprofit and private organizations to address homelessness, Corona can make positive changes in the lives of the homeless, while also respecting the rights of home and business owners.

  • On Monday, March 11, the Homelessness Resources Committee met with stakeholders, local non-profits, faith-based organizations and community volunteers to perform a SWOT Analysis and Asset Mapping Exercise facilitated by Dr. Debra Mustain from Norco College. The presentation is available here.
  • On April 5, the City of Corona launched a "Homeless Outreach" Data Dashboard to display current statistics, resources, and outreach efforts. The page houses information on the current number of homeless neighbors, provides a snapshot of homelessness forms, and showcases outreach engagements to date. Click here to explore the Data Dashboard.
  • On May 22, 2019 Corona City Council Members held a 2nd study session to update and discuss homelessness in Corona and provide direction to staff. Click here to watch the video from the study session.
  • On December 11, 2019, the Homelessness Resources Committee met with stakeholders and community members to discuss options for an Inclement Weather Shelter, the Homeless Strategic Plan components and timeline, and the January 29, 2020 Count of the Homeless. Click here to view meeting details.

The Homelessness Resources Committee meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 3 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room on the 1st Floor at Corona City Hall, 400 South Vicentia Avenue.

Creating Solutions

City Net 

City Net is a team of nonprofit professionals who work to end street-level homelessness in a city or region through the coordination of community efforts and activities.

City Net

In many cases, City Net is contracted by cities and regions to lead multi-sector homeless collaboratives, which unite city and county agencies, law enforcement, non-profit organizations, businesses, advocacy groups, concerned citizens and the faith community in a singular effort to address and end homelessness in the community. The coordination of care among these groups results in shared goals and successes greater than the sum of the individual parts.

When local needs require it, City Net also deploys staff in direct service provision through street outreach and case management services. Street outreach seeks to connect unsheltered homeless neighbors with emergency shelter, housing, or critical services, and providing urgent, non-facility-based care. These activities are intended to help homeless neighbors obtain appropriate supportive services, including permanent housing, medical health treatment, mental health treatment, counseling, supervision, and other services essential for achieving independent living; housing stability case management; and other Federal, State, local, or private assistance available to assist the program participant in obtaining housing stability.

City Net also works to mobilize community resources, including meals, volunteers, donations and advocacy, to coordinate care in emergency shelters, parks, and other public areas where homeless neighbors live. These efforts seek to reduce wasteful duplication and fill missing gaps in the continuum of care, with the long-term goal of ending homelessness by providing homeless neighbors a stable context in which their emergency needs are met, so they can work on long-term housing plans. Community interest?

There are many ways to support efforts within Corona. One way you can support is through monetary donations, which will be directly used to meet the needs of our Corona clients and support their housing plan. Funds will be used for things like; $5 one-day bus passes, gift cards to food establishments and grocery stores, documentation fees, and housing program fees. To donate, please visit our website at www.citynet.org/corona
