From the Sacramento Housing & Redevelopment Agency's newsletter:

SHRA, the City of Sacramento, Jamboree and members of the community recently celebrated the opening of Vista Nueva, a Homekey project providing permanent supportive housing in Natomas for families experiencing homelessness.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held October 13 to mark the occasion. The project is located in District 1 represented by Vice Mayor Angelique Ashby, a staunch supporter of the development. She noted the dedicated work that was required to get the project off the ground and forecasted how the project will help families in the community who are on the verge of homelessness.

Geared toward helping families with at least one minor child, the project is already accomplishing the goal, as the day of the opening a young mother due to give birth at any moment was able to move into the community and eventually bring her baby home to Vista Nueva.

“Opening the doors to this community for 116 homeless families with children will renew hope and create a pathway to a better future that stable, safe housing can provide,” said SHRA Executive Director La Shelle Dozier. “This partnership between the City of Sacramento, SHRA, and Jamboree are essential to Homekey projects like Vista Nueva that can help address Sacramento’s homeless crisis."

Vista Nueva consists of 63 studios, 39 one-bedrooms, and 14 two-bedrooms for families and children that will serve over 200 individuals.
