The City of Newport Beach, like all coastal cities in Southern California, has individuals who are currently experiencing homelessness due to a lack of affordable housing, employment, healthcare and mental health services, or have experienced life-changing events. The City has adopted a comprehensive approach to connecting these individuals with appropriate resources and housing.

For assistance with issues related to homelessness, please contact the City's Homeless Coordinator:

Natalie Basmaciyan
