Since Culver City declared a homelessness emergency in January 2023, the City has taken unprecedented action toward resolving homelessness, including opening permanent and supportive housing sites, opening a safe-sleep site, providing shelter at two local motels, launching a mobile crisis response team, partnering with street-based healthcare, and offering extensive outreach services weekly.
