The cold days are creeping into the Central Coast. Those who don’t have a roof over their head are trying to stay warm. Some move from place to place. Others are staying put and looking to find resources. Some can rely on things like heaters at home or new jackets. But what about those that have to sleep in the streets? Some resources can help, like Community Human Services. COO Shawn Stone gives some examples. “We have an outreach program, and we have a youth shelter,” Stone said. “Our street outreach program goes out into various areas within the community and connect with homeless youth to be able to give them support or connections to other services that might be applicable to them.”
