Mayor Gutierrez' Weekly Message

Similar programs have been successful in other cities such as Albuquerque, New Mexico and Denver, Colorado. Moreno Valley plans to mirror their successes and learn from their challenges to create a strong program that benefits our community.

It’s important to remember, we are neighbors and we take care of each other.

More information on the Homeless to Work program is available on September 5, 2017 broadcast of the City Council Meeting HERE .

Mayor's Minute

Mayor’s Weekly Message – September 18

Dear Moreno Valley Residents:

I feel fortunate every day that I get to serve and live in the great City of Moreno Valley. I also believe it’s important to look out for those who are less fortunate.

During the State of the City address when I said that “we are putting our people back to work”, I meant everyone . We recently launched a new Homeless to Work (H2W) pilot program to provide new opportunities to those most in need.

The Homeless to Work program will help prepare participants to transition to the active workforce by providing temporary employment while connecting them with social service resources to help overcome obstacles to their pursuit of gainful employment and permanent housing. The City will partner with a community non-profit agency in this effort to help reduce homelessness in Moreno Valley.

Here’s how the H2W pilot program works:

  • The City’s non-profit partner will operate the program to maximize the benefit of utilizing a non-profit agency with specialized experience in working with homeless individuals.
  • Work assignments will be designed by the City, focusing entirely upon enhancement of public property, and will not require specialized training or involve any hazardous materials or assignments.
  • A site supervisor with a passenger van will be provided by the nonprofit program partner to transport participants and monitor or assist with work as needed.
  • A sack lunch and water will be provided to each participant.
  • The Homeless to Work pilot program will be financed by Federal Housing and Urban Development funds.

Meet Mayor Gutierrez

A resident of Moreno Valley for more than 20 years, Mayor Gutierrez serves as the City’s first directly elected mayor. He began service as a City Council member in 2013, was appointed Mayor Pro Tem and Mayor, and was elected mayor of Moreno Valley in 2016. Mayor Gutierrez is proud of the City’s success in bringing more than 9,000 new jobs to our community over the past three years. He has championed the award-winning Hire MoVal program – an initiative that promotes hiring local Moreno Valley residents while offering economic incentives to businesses through utility rate discounts and business license waivers.

He is an advocate for Moreno Valley’s Citywide Camera program and cutting edge community policing programs which allow the City to stretch resources while reducing crime and making neighborhoods safer.

Mayor Gutierrez also works diligently to improve community engagement to help ensure that City government effectively represents its residents and businesses. He created the Summer at City Hall program to give local high school students an inside view at how city government works and spearheaded the establishment of the Emerging Leaders Council, a panel of college students between the ages of 18 and 25 who advise Moreno Valley officials on youth issues.

Mayor Gutierrez has served on the boards of the March Joint Powers Authority (MJPA), the Western Riverside Council (WRCOG), the City’s Finance and Economic Development subcommittees, and as an alternate on the Riverside County Transportation Commission.

In addition to his role on the Moreno Valley City Council, Mayor Gutierrez has spent the last decade working with local youth as a special education teacher with the Moreno Valley Unified School District. He is also a reading instructor with Moreno Valley College.

The first member of his family to go to college, he earned an associate’s degree from Moreno Valley College, a bachelor’s degree from California Baptist University, a master’s degree in Education and a doctoral degree in Special Education from Northcentral University. Mayor Gutierrez is also an alumnus of USC’s Executive Education in Public Policy program and the USC Executive Education Marshall School of Business program in Strategic Analysis in Achieving Competitive Advantage.

He is a member of the United States Conference of Mayors Latino Alliance Committee along with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Mayor Gutierrez also serves as a local board member for the US Selective Service. Members are nominated by the governor and appointed by the director of the Selective Service System on behalf of the President of the United States. Mayor Gutierrez has been serving in that capacity since 2016.

“I am honored to have been chosen as the first directly-elected mayor of Moreno Valley, the city where I grew up and the city where I continue to live and work,” said Mayor Gutierrez. “I look forward to bringing more job opportunities and preserving an exceptional quality of life for our community. Together, we are putting Moreno Valley on the map and continuing to make it work for our residents.”
