Co-Chair: Renee A. Sabshin M.D.
Mission Statement: The Homeless Issues Sub-Committee mission is to promote stakeholder input concerning homeless issues in our community. The Committee encourages involvement, provides relevant information and resources, acts as advocate and liaison, and supports viable and equitable solutions. Our goal is to decrease the number of homeless people on the streets of Mar Vista by 20% every year over the next five years.
The Committee meets monthly on the third Tuesday of the month from 6:30pm - 8:00pm. Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, we currently meet on ZOOM.

A Statement from the Co-Chairs: We reject “us versus them,” “good versus bad,” “NIMBY versus YIMBY” rhetoric. We respect differences of opinion and recognize our housed and unhoused neighbors have valid concerns. We foster informed discussion of issues and potential solutions to further our common goal of improving quality of life for all of Mar Vista.
