The Laguna Beach Relief and Resource Center will discontinue daytime services for the city's homeless population at the Alternative Sleeping Location (ASL) on Oct. 15.
City officials said options are being discussed, but they declined further comment on the talks held this week with representatives of the Friendship Shelter, which is contracted by the city to operate the ASL at night, and the resource center, which has determined it does not have the financial resources to continue its work at the ASL as well as its other operations.
FOR THE RECORD:
An earlier version incorrectly stated that the Laguna Beach Relief and Resource Center couldn't continue working at the Alternative Sleeping location or its other operations. In fact, the center says it can't work at ASL and do its other operations, so it's cutting back on the ASL.
"Because we will no longer operate at the ASL, we will be able to expand services to low-income families and the homeless, as well as be available in disasters," said resource center board President Andy Sigenfeld.
