2019 Homeless Count
Every year, a census of the homeless population is done through the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count. The Count helps to better understand homelessness in our region and direct resources where they’re needed most. The count needs at least 8,000 volunteers to canvas more than 80 cities and 200 communities across LA County. More volunteers are needed for the Encino Count!

An Encino Family Festival will be held on Sunday, October 7, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Ventura Blvd., between Balboa Blvd. and Amestoy St. The free admission event will feature family activities, music, and food. Previously known as the Taste of Encino, the event has been an annual community tradition for 31 years.
“This festival offers families a variety of wholesome entertainment, and it’s a nice way to spend time together on a Sunday,” said Atoosa Ring, one of the festival’s directors. “I encourage individuals and families to join in the fun.”
The festival, presented by the Encino Chamber of Commerce, has evolved over the past 31 years. It no longer revolves only around food. This year, the Encino Family Festival will include: Kids Fun Zone with all types of games and activities; live entertainment with bands, musical acts and dance routines; food trucks with an assortment of delicious menu items; arts and crafts vendors; business, nonprofit, and school booths; and a Beverage Garden.
