  4. We find new solutions for the unhoused - Outreach services and staffing have been expanded recently; City Council has approved a plan to provide 30 units of Permanent Supportive Housing and 280 motel stays annually for 10 years to address the situation.
  5. We support regional efforts to end homelessness - The Human Services Division participates in the Westside Cities Council of Governments' monthly working group on the unhoused, along with neighboring cities and Los Angeles County.

Resolution to Create a Parking Forgiveness Program

Parking citations often pose a barrier to stability and self-sufficiency for individuals and families who are homeless, formerly homeless, or at-risk of homelessness. Many of these individuals live paycheck-to-paycheck, and thus parking citations can result in an impounded car that can then result in loss of work and a reduction in income. Those who have already lost their homes and live in their cars are frequently subjected to parking citations, which they often cannot pay, resulting in impoundment. Unable to retrieve their cars, they may lose all of their possessions and their last form of shelter. The City Council of the City of Beverly Hills is aware of this critical problem and is concerned about individuals and families who are homeless, formerly homeless, or at-risk of homelessness.  Read more about the resolution and forgiveness program.

Additionally, the City provides a Community Assistance Grant to Safe Parking LA, a non-profit organization that provides safe parking lots for people living in their vehicles to park at and use restroom and laundry facilities.
