Homeless Roundtable of the City of Vacaville

Logo for the homless roundtable - there's a better wayThe Homeless Roundtable is a collection of local and county agencies, churches and concerned residents working to address the homeless situation in Vacaville. Our theme is simple: There's a Better Way. Our mantra is equally simple: Enforce, Educate and Engage. We will post a variety of links and documents on this page for both those wishing to find assistance and resources as well as those wishing to connect people to assistance and resources. If there's something you would like to see added to the page, or other suggestions for the page, send an e-mail to cinfo@cityofvacaville.com. The group meets at 3 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in Conference Room A/B, Vacaville City Hall, 650 Merchant St., Vacaville, CA.

REPORT ON HOMELESSNESS IN VACAVILLE (Written in 2010)

On any given night, within the City limits, somewhere between 14 to 200 Vacaville residents don’t have a bed of their own to sleep in. While the exact number of homeless Vacaville residents cannot be quantified, there are a number of reliable estimates, based on the efforts of those who serve this population. Many of these individuals have called Vacaville home for decades.
