Supervisor Katrina Foley Releases Statement on Governor Newsom’s CARE Court Proposal Clearing First Legislative Hurdle with Broad Support

Orange County, CA – Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley released the following statement today upon Governor Newsom’s CARE Court Proposal clearing its first legislative hearing. 

“Our current system fails to address the needs of our homeless population with severe mental illness and the CARE Court model promises an approach to fill that gap. This paradigm shift allows us to utilize a problem-solving approach to help the most chronically homeless get the supportive services they need,” said Supervisor Foley. “The unacceptable status quo must change for those living on the streets and the public who are forced to experience encampments. I support the Governor’s leadership on CARE Court and commit to working with our county partners to comprehensively address homelessness in our communities.”
