Police Department Hosts Annual Homeless Outreach Event

Post Date:11/16/2018 11:30 AM

On Tuesday, November 13, the Sausalito Police Department hosted its annual Homeless Outreach Event in Marinship Park for Sausalito's anchor-out and homeless communities. Approximately thirty-five people attended the event and received free medical care, flu shots, clothing, and other supplies. The relaxed atmosphere of the event fostered open communication between officers and attendees. 

A mobile showers trailer from Marin Mobile Care and the mobile dental van from the Marin City Health and Wellness Center were two new additions to the event this year. Six people were able to enjoy a shower, and many others had their teeth examined and fluoride applied.

Marin Health and Human Services offered clothing, toiletries, and emergency supplies. The Marin Humane Society supplied dog leashes, pet food, and clothing for animals of all sorts. Once again, Sean Saylor of Saylor's Restaurant and Bar provided a taco bar for everyone who attended.
