The City of Woodland, like many cities, continues to experience significant impacts associated with a growing population of people experiencing homelessness. In 2017, the City formally endorsed the "Housing First" model - endorsed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - which shifts the focus (and funding) from shelters and field service to permanent supportive housing.

While the City works to prioritize implementation of Housing First policies, we remain concerned about the impacts and issues sometimes associated with our unhoused population.
