Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin joined community leaders today at the Poverello House to celebrate the one-year milestone of the community’s participation in the coordinated entry system called MAP Point @ the Pov.


For the past year, the MAP Point program has connected individuals facing homelessness, substance abuse challenges and/or mental illness to area support services.

Cruz Avila, executive director of the Poverello House, accompanied Mayor Swearengin at the morning celebration.

Also joining the mayor was Jody Ketcheside, chair of the Fresno Madera Continuum of Care, Dawan Utecht of the Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health, Lynne Ashbeck of Community Medical Centers and Preston Prince from the Fresno Housing Authority.
