Pasadena, like most cities, continues to face on-going, complex issues related to homelessness, even though the number of homeless in Pasadena has declined about 46 percent during the past three years. Innovative solutions, local and regional partnerships, enforcement/public safety and the ongoing search for continued federal and state funding are part of the multi-faceted challenges that panelists will talk about.
