Some of us who have worked with those taking advantage of our Alternative Sleeping Center have provided transportation to places which provide access to social services. We have found it takes most of a day to help a person to apply for food stamps.
We went to our Fifth District County Supervisor, Pat Bates, to see if she could help. She was gracious in receiving us and promised to see what she could do.
Within weeks, a representative from county services was helping clients get the services they were entitled to on the site of our Sleeping Center. And they will continue to assist in the future.
Pat Bates deserves thanks from the caring people of Laguna Beach.
