RESPONSIBLE COMPASSION FOR THE HOMELESS

The community is urged to practice Responsible Compassion with those in need. We want to provide the right help in the right ways that will allow people to tackle their barriers and end their homelessness.

 

DO’S & DON’TS

DO Let Your Generosity Be a Part of the Solution

DO respond to solicitation requests with a firm NO.

DO report an illegal activity by calling 911 or non-emergency law enforcement number 951-696-HELP(4357).

DO treat homeless with respect and dignity.

DO offer homeless information to get help, such as dialing 211 community connect.

DO volunteer with or donate to organizations that help the homeless.

DON’T encourage panhandling by giving money, food, supplies, etc.

DON’T give homeless your address or take them to your home.

DON’T allow camping or loitering on your property.

DON’T assume you’re making a difference when you are giving; you may actually be hurting, not helping.
