Mountain Communities – On Thursday, January 25 mountain homeless coalition, in conjunction with the San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health, will perform a survey and count of our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Starting at St. Richard’s Episcopalian Church, located at 28708 Hwy 118, Skyforest, at 6:00 a.m., teams will go out to the streets, in the woods and at local churches and provider locations until done, or 11:00 a.m.

Volunteers and Team Leaders are still needed to do a good job. Team leaders need training, that is provided by the county on the following dates and locations:
