The nonprofit organization Mercy House, which works to provide homeless outreach services, began work in San Clemente on Sept. 10 and will provide two homeless outreach coordinators throughout its time here, according to a press release from the city.
“Mercy House will work closely with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department to better understand the city’s homeless population,” a press release from the city stated.
The outreach coordinators will rotate shifts Monday through Friday and a half day on Saturdays, the release stated.
With help from Mercy House, the city stated it will be able to “track inflows and outflows of homelessness, client needs, and what strategies may be most effective in assisting the city’s homeless population,” the city’s release stated.
