In this recording of the Feb. 20, 2024 Cal4All Call, Jenna Topper (Animal Services Coordinator) and Phillip Zimmerman (Animal Care Services Manager) talk about HOAP, the Homeless Outreach and Assistance Program launched in May 2022. The City of Sacramento Front Street Animal Shelter initiative aims to remove barriers and keep pets and people together in a city and county where over 4,000 people face chronic homelessness, second to only Los Angeles and New York City, and over 9,000 people experience homelessness.

Some good questions were posted to the chat during the presentation. Since the presentation took the whole hour, there was no time to answer the questions live.  Jenna recorded the video below to provide answers. Please note that there are several short audio drop-outs in the source file that were not correctable after the fact.
