Berkeley Homeless Task Force



The Berkeley Homeless Task Force is a community-led process bringing together service providers, homeless persons, students, business owners, and the broader community to identify challenges towards addressing homelessness, and to develop a plan for improved services, housing opportunities, and other programs to serve Berkeley's homeless population.

Established in the summer of 2013, the goal of the task force is to bring stakeholders together to discuss common goals and to develop a community vision towards addressing homelessness. The Task Force will develop a report to the Berkeley City Council with program, policy and funding recommendations to improve services to the homeless.  

All Task Force meetings are open to the public and roundtable discussions between equals within the community. To ensure that quality of process among us, we ask that those attending our meetings come ready to listen as well as to speak and contribute. Mutual respect is of utmost importance to our work together. Kids are always welcome, as are contributions to the snack table. We hope to see you soon!


The Berkeley City Council held a special work session on the Homeless Task Force's recommendations on June 23, 2015. Here is a copy of the final Task Force report 

and Power Point presentation 

The City Council will be voting on directing staff to study and implement the Task Force recommendations this fall. Check back here for details. 


There are currently no future meetings scheduled.
