These are challenging times for everyone and I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to our first responders, essential workers and residents for your strength and willingness to help your neighbors. I am proud to serve such a resilient and strong community. With recent concerns, I’d also like to provide more background on Stanton’s ongoing efforts to address homelessness.

In 2018, the City of Stanton’s effort to enforce our ordinances prohibiting camping in public was significantly impeded through the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th District in the case of Martin v. City of Boise. Based on a formula set by the ruling, the City of Stanton must provide emergency shelter beds in order to enforce local codes.  

On May 1, 2019 the City entered into an agreement with 12 other cities in the North Orange County Service Planning Area (SPA) to share the cost and operations of two navigation centers in the cities of Placentia and Buena Park largely through grant funds.

The key and current challenge is that both shelters must be opened and operating before all 13 cities can enforce ordinances prohibiting camping in public. Placentia opened on March 30, 2020 and Buena Park will open June 2020. 

Stanton’s regional initiative to address homelessness centers on weekly outreach, access to services, permanent housing placement and enforcement if necessary through public safety and code enforcement.

Weekly street cleaning and disinfecting of our public sidewalks began on May 6, 2020 and will continue every Wednesday until further notice. Cleanings are conducted in conjunction with the county, our public safety team and engagement professionals. For tools available to you as a resident or business owner in matters concerning public safety, click here.

In addition, the Stanton City Council has been working hard on a new solution that will expand Stanton’s ability to help people out of homelessness and off the streets. Follow us on social media to learn more about this upcoming announcement and other updates as we work together to keep our community a safe place to live, work and play.

YOUR Community Services Dept is Hard at Work
We are committed to ensuring that our #StantonStrong community has what they need to continue to live well, play hard, and grow strong. To stay connected, we created a virtual Recreation Center with ideas to keep your family moving and get creative! Our Family Resource Center has also gone Virtual, providing valuable connections to our mental health and resiliency programs. Staff have continued to serve our community through a variety of programs:

Senior Services staff are serving 1,300 meals to families each week.

We hosted a virtual Easter egg hunt and distributed 125 Easter baskets to our families at a drive-thru event! 

This week, FRC staff delivered "Summer Fun" bags to our Out-of-School-Time participants.   

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram - through June, we'll be honoring local High School and College graduating seniors. Have a graduate to include? Email us at PIO@ci.stanton.ca.us
Serving Stanton: Supporting our Community
We’ve partnered with the Stanton Community Foundation to provide “Serving Stanton.” SCF is accepting donations to be used to purchase gift cards from Stanton restaurants. Gift cards will go to Stanton families impacted by COVID-19 and also serve as a thank our public safety personnel including Fire, Sheriff, Grocery staff, and other essential personnel who are working tirelessly to help our community during this time of need. 

The City commends the Stanton Community Foundation for their continued support of our Stanton community. In addition to creating "Serving Stanton," the Foundation has donated over 100 handmade masks to be distributed to seniors in our community. This thoughtful gesture has been such a pleasant surprise to our patrons and we are grateful for our continued partnership.  

 If your restaurant is interested in participating in this program, please e-mail pio@ci.stanton.ca.us with your name and contact information.
