From ABC 10 Sacramento:
The city of Sacramento is breaking ground on a new housing development for people transitioning out of homelessness.
It's called Northview Pointe and it's located in North Sacramento, off Northgate Boulevard near Garden Highway.
Set to open summer 2024, Northview Pointe will eventually be able to house about 100 people. It will include wraparound services to support people as they transition out of homelessness.
That’s as there are more than 9,200 people experiencing homelessness county wide.
La Shelle Dozier, executive director of the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency, said projects like Northview Pointe are crucial.
"Until we create more housing, until we make sure there are projects like this one that has all of the wraparound services and all the amenities people need so that they can be successful in housing, then we're going to continue to find ourselves in the predicament that we are today,” she said at Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony.
