HOMELESS OUTREACH FAIR


     The Redlands Police Department periodically sponsors a Homeless Outreach Fair conducted by RPD's Community Policing Officers. The events take place from from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Sylvan Park, 601 N University St, Redlands, CA..  Representatives from such organizations as the Azusa Pacific University School of Nursing, 211, the County, Steps 4 Life, etc.,, are represented.  Future Fairs will be announced here as the dates become available.  Organizations that wish to have representation are asked to 1) devote one or two workers to this event; 2) bring whatever supplies you will need; and 3) advise Officer Brad Grantz in advance at [email protected] so enough canopies, tables and chairs can be provided.

NEW HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES

     The RCRC is well aware of the lack of housing for homeless people in our city. RCRC is working hard to discover workable solutions. 

     Because of the scarcity of housing, we have found it necessary to list here organizations in the greater Inland Empire located outside of our city (see the HOUSING/SHELTER section). Homeless people or their advocates are urged to contact each of these providers to determine the best solution. 

     Some organizations may be out of funding from time to time or their facilities are full. But those situations can change from day to day. Persistence is the key...keep calling back. These organizations WANT to help.

FREE DENTAL CLINIC AT THE ASSISTANCE LEAGUE OF REDLANDS DENTAL CENTER.  CLINICS ARE HELD FROM 1:00 P.M. TO 4:00 P.M. MONTHLY.  THE NEXT DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE. SEE MEDICAL/MENTAL/DENTAL SECTION FOR DETAILS (RIGHT SIDE, SCROLL DOWN).  

WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE YOUR CITY MORE BEAUTIFUL TOO?


On May 25, 2016, the RCRC sponsored an information meeting dealing with putting homeless people to work by cleaning the freeways that run through our city. Such a program has worked well  for 2 years in Bakersfield, CA, so RCRC invited Sal Moretti, the Solid Waste Superintendent for the city of Bakersfield, CA, to speak about their program. Mr. Moretti works with the Bakersfield Homeless Center, which provides laborers who work with Cal Trans to clean the freeways that go through Bakersfield. The Bakersfield program has enabled numerous homeless people and their families to get off the streets.  The RCRC would like to share this program with your city.  Please click the link below to view Mr. Moretti's 39 minute presentation.

WHO WE ARE


The Redlands Charitable Resource Coalition (RCRC), based in Redlands, California, is comprised of people from non-profit and faith-based organizations and concerned residents of Redlands, who have come together to provide an online directory of critical referrals for impoverished people or those in crisis in our city.


The services listed on this Website include the names, addresses, Redlands Map location and contact information of groups that provide free food, free meals, free medical/dental/mental health service, shelter (temporary and long term), showers, laundry, job skills counseling, veterans services, addiction services and counseling for the re-entry of former inmates of the justice system, to mention only a few.

 

The Map can be accessed by clicking the Redlands Map link above.  The number next to each arrow on the Redlands Map corresponds to the number next to the name of the provider in the sections below.  Several providers are outside the Map area and directions to their locations are included here.  They are set forth here and in the Resource Guide because of the unique essential service they provide and because their service is not available in Redlands.
