Why Nominated: I would like to recommend and nominate the Anaheim Homeless Liaison Officer team of Sergeant Mike Lozeau, Captain Bob Conklin and Officer Mat Beck for the 2015 Spirit of Volunteerism Award.
This team of specially trained Homeless Liaison Officers in the City of Anaheim, is dedicated to working with the homeless in a compassionate manner. Since partnering with the Coast to Coast Foundation non-profit organization, these officers have demonstrated service above and beyond to the homeless community in the City of Anaheim. They have provided the homeless with basic necessities, motel vouchers, bus passes, clothes and gift cards to fast-food restaurants, as well as reaching out to assist the homeless in getting other resources and services they need. As a result, 46 people in the City of Anaheim have been reconnected with family or friends and subsequently relocated to be with their loved ones in 16 states and internationally. This team of officers along with Coast to Coast volunteers also conducts outreach to the homeless on a weekly basis. Through all of these efforts and more, this team of Homeless Liaison Officers is making a difference for the community in the City of Anaheim.
