1. No low-barrier homeless shelter next to Heritage Elementary School -- an alternate location is a MUST
2. No to the Jamboree housing project (a permanent shelter partially dedicated to chronically homeless with serious mentally illness) across from the Greenwood neighborhood, next to two apartment complexes, and Victory Park.
3. Alignment with Tustin City Council that Tustin Legacy will not be the only place in the city housing the homeless -- it is disproportionate, and unsafe for our community
As a result of a proposed settlement from a federal lawsuit, Tustin has enacted plans to open a homeless shelter with 50 beds that must be up and running within 120 days.
Due to the very short time frame mandated by the court, and after a review of several sites, the City has selected a temporary location on the corner of Red Hill and Valencia -- just steps away from Heritage Elementary School.
This site is dedicated to providing resources to residents who do not want this to happen. We believe that it is a safety risk to the children of Heritage Elementary School, and such a risk is unacceptable.
While many of the residents in Tustin Legacy agree the homeless issue needs to be addressed, we believe that the hastily chosen location of this shelter poses a risk to our children who attend Heritage Elementary School.
Please explore our site for more resources on how to help and check back for updates frequently.
