County Finds Money for Homeless

(Sacramento, CA)
Tuesday, October 4, 2011

The money was previously budgeted to fill positions within the Department of Human Assistance.  Since no one was hired, the money became available, according to Supervisor Phil Serna

SERNA: "Those positions are intended to be filled, but they won't be filled for a number of months. Meanwhile, during the coldest, wettest months of the year, we thought it would be very appropriate to continue to fund -at least at the same level we did last year- the winter shelter programs."

The County had previously announced it would be unable to fund any shelters…That announcement was met with considerable criticism by Sacramento-area, non-profit organizations.  A recent census estimated the number of homeless in Sacramento County at about 2300 people
