The City of Encinitas collaborates with many agencies and non-profit organizations to provide resources to those experiencing homelessness, as well as develop solutions for reducing or preventing homelessness.

If you see a person experiencing homelessness, or an encampment, please submit a request through the MyEncinitas App or through Report an Issue Online. This is an efficient way for the City to get the appropriate resources deployed to assist with the concern. If the request is being submitted during a time when City Hall is closed, please contact the Non-emergency Sheriff's Dispatch Line: 858-565-5200If it is an emergency, please dial 911.

The City has also developed a Homeless Action Plan that was adopted by City Council on February 24, 2021 to act as a guiding document for the City to address the needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness. For more information please click the Homeless Action Plan below.
