City of Arcadia Recreation and Community Services Department is at the forefront of the City's homelessness initiative and serves as the designated project lead for coordinating the City’s response to homelessness. The Department coordinates the City’s participation in the annual PIT Count and has created resource and referral information for individuals experiencing homelessness.
