City of Glendale to Provide Meals and Deploy Hygiene Facilities for Individuals Experiencing Homelessness

AND

Update to City’s Elderly Nutrition Program

 

Glendale, CA - The City of Glendale has been working to provide more resources for people living unsheltered leading up to and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Glendale’s Police Department and Community Services & Parks Department have been working diligently to protect our most vulnerable residents from COVID-19, and are coming together to provide packaged meals on a daily basis for people experiencing homelessness.

In addition and in an effort to help our unsheltered population stay clean and reduce the spread of COVID-19, the City’s Public Works Department has been working on a series of efforts to increase hygiene facilities citywide. The City will deploy portable hand washing stations, as well as bathrooms across Glendale.

Hand washing stations are located at:

  • Ascencia
  • Catholic Charities
  • Armenian Relief Society
  • First Baptist Methodist Church

Bathrooms/Handwashing stations are located at:

  • Carr Park
  • Pacific Park  
  • Cerritos Park
  • Central Park
  • Palmer Park
