From the Sacramento Housing & Redevelopment Agency's newsletter:
Since opening on September 6th as a temporary shelter at the Capitol Park Hotel on 9th Street, 110 homeless residents who had been living on the street in Sacramento’s downtown and midtown areas have accepted housing at the shelter and are receiving assistance in finding permanent housing.
The Capitol Park shelter was opened under a pla financed by the City of Sacramento and administered by SHRA to get homeless residents off the street with assistance in finding a permanent place to live. The shelter is operated under a partnership agreement with SHRA, Volunteers of America, Sacramento Steps Forward and The John Stewart Company. Residents who were already living in the 180-unit single room occupancy hotel are receiving assistance from relocation consultants to find other places to live.
The shelter program provides guests with three daily meals and supportive services from medical, substance abuse and mental health providers such as Sacramento Self-Help Housing, Sacramento County Department of Health Services, Elica Health Centers, WellSpace Health, American River College, California State University and Overland Pacific Cutler. The goal is to serve 100-180 guests. Mercy Housing anticipates construction of 134 units of permanent supportive housing to start near the end of next year.
