Homeless Community Court

Santa Monica’s Homeless Community Court is a problem-solving court program that addresses the legal issues of homeless individuals with the purpose of connecting them to services and permanent housing. By addressing root problems that lead to criminal behavior participants are less likely to repeat offenses that land them back in front of a judge.
