Hi Santa Cruz Local reader,
Stephen Baxter and I co-founded Santa Cruz Local two years ago because we love Santa Cruz County. Our newsroom exists to listen to, inform and serve county residents. THANK YOU for your member support!
We have an ambitious plan. In the next three months, we plan to investigate what’s being done to address homelessness in our county. We want to look at programs that have shown promise at addressing homelessness in other parts of California. We want to understand how those approaches work, examine their limitations and share insights.
This reporting will build on our previous stories and podcast episodes with insight into problems and solutions related to homelessness in Santa Cruz County.
We’ve heard from hundreds of Santa Cruz County residents that solving homelessness is their top priority. We’ve planned this series because of you.
This kind of deep, community-informed, solutions-focused journalism takes time, and it’s expensive.
We need to raise $10,000 by July 30 to start our reporting.
All our news is free. We rely on support from people like you.
What do you say? Will you make a meaningful donation to Santa Cruz Local today?
