Peninsula Poverty Response (PPR) has served the Long Beach Peninsula for the last six years through different events including fundraising events such as the Cape D Triathlon and Golf Tournament and our direct service events Project Homeless Connect (PHC), Pack2School, and, for the last three winters, Overnight Winter Lodging (OWL). Our last season saw declining guest numbers. As a result, we distributed community surveys in the late summer of this year to community members as well as staff of the Ocean Beach School District to ask what the greatest needs of the community are. We brought our survey data to a Community Forum that we hosted at the end of September where we opened a conversation with local resources and area residents. The forum increased our knowledge and understanding about the needs that are faced in our area. We have decided to not continue the Overnight Winter Lodging (OWL) program in its previous form. We are researching different opportunities to serve in our community. We are excited to be able to partner with our community members and other organizations as we move forward in service.
