Partners with Elica Health Services to provide outreach and services

In response to the recent tragic incidents that have occurred at City Hall, the City of Sacramento, through the Sacramento Police Department in partnership with Elica Health Services, will provide medical outreach for those who are currently seeking shelter on City Hall property, Wednesday night.

Elica Health Services and the Sacramento Police Department’s Impact Team will be offering health assessments, service referrals, and blankets throughout the evening, beginning at 7 p.m., to ensure the safety and security of those currently seeking shelter on City Hall property.

“The City of Sacramento is taking action in the face of two tragic deaths that have occurred on the doorstep of City Hall in recent weeks,” said Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg.

“While we work towards permanent solutions to our homelessness crisis, we owe a huge debt of gratitude to Elica Health for stepping up and providing medical evaluations and treatment to the men and women who sleep outside of City Hall.”

In addition to the pilgrimage Rotating Shelter, the City’s Weather Refuge Center at Southside Park (2107 6th Street) remains available from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. when temperatures are forecast below 40 degrees. The city has a page on its website with a link of all emergency services.

The City continues to work toward a permanent solution to alleviate homelessness and are exploring options to address the urgent need of those individuals currently experiencing homelessness.
