• Homeless Shelters Listed

    With cold weather upon us, Coalition of Homeless Services Providers Executive Officer Katherine Thoeni released the Monterey County Homeless Shelter listing to the community. “No resident should have to spend nights in the cold when shelter options exist,” said Thoeni. “ Programs throughout the County expand winter shelter beds to the greatest degree possible.”

    The Coalition of Homeless Services Providers (CHSP) is a group of private nonprofit and public organizations working together to address the complex issue of homelessness. Their mission is to “eliminate homelessness in Monterey and San Benito Counties by promoting interagency coordination to develop and sustain a comprehensive system of housing and support services designed to maximize the self-sufficiency of individuals and families.” The programs of CHSP and its member agencies alleviate the human deprivation caused by family and individual homelessness and prevent the continuation of conditions of extreme poverty by breaking the cycle of homelessness.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
