Entities presenting to the council include the Regional Task Force on the Homeless, San Diego County, Mayor Kevin Faulconer's office, the San Diego Housing Commission, San Diego State University's Institute for Public Health and the council's Select Committee on Homelessness.

Representatives from each office will discuss challenges and successes fighting homelessness in San Diego last year. They will also address how the city may support long-term strategies to eradicate homelessness.

The meeting will be held at 2 p.m. in the Council Chamber on the City Administration Building's 12th floor, 202 C St.
