[Orange County] Orange County cities present plans toward helping growing homeless population

Blog note: this story references grand jury reports.

Friday was the deadline for cities in Orange County to outline to a judge how they planned to deal with the growing homeless population.

Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do said real steps were taken toward helping the homeless community.

In another federal court hearing, several cities have timelines and plans to build shelters, creating beds for those in need.

"It's a significant step forward for the whole county, in term of a regional solution to homelessness," Do said.
