“I sought to create the Select Committee with my colleagues to identify opportunities to strengthen on going working relationships between advocates, non-profits, the private sector, as well as local and state government, to combat Orange County’s chronic homeless population,” said Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva. “The goal of this hearing is to focus on the progress that the region has made over the last year, what we need to continue to work on, and the role each of us play.”
