The Fresno City Council on Thursday held a two-hour workshop on homelessness.
Officials from City Hall and nonprofits said a coordinated effort among stakeholders is helping many of the city's most vulnerable people find permanent housing. The result, they said, is a better life for the destitute and stability in neighborhoods that have been affected by concentrated homelessness.
City Manager Bruce Rudd said the city and homeless advocates will build on their successes. He said the city plans to spend $1 million this year for rental assistance for the homeless.
