The City of Anaheim recognizes homelessness can evolve from events such as the loss of a job, lack of family support, or serious illness, though for some being homeless is a choice. Those seeking help are invited to review Coming Home Anaheim, the City’s approach to addressing homelessness, which includes developing shelter options, human services, and more.
