In the event of an emergency, Inclement Weather Episodes and shelter availability, or housing-related issues, the Office of Supportive Housing has arranged with the County Office of Emergency Services to be able to send text messages to the homeless, service providers and anyone else who would like to receive the messages. To be included in this messaging opportunity, send a text message HOMELESS to 888777. Service providers, shelter personnel, case managers and outreach teams are encouraged to share this information with their clientele so that as many people as possible can subscribe to this FREE service. Please help spread the word, so more individuals in need of shelter, especially in times of inclement weather, can learn of sheltering opportunities.
The AlertSCC HOMELESS texting card
is available for anyone interested in spreading information about AlertSCC.
