The vision is a healthier community for all.
The goal of this program is to keep people in North County alive through the cold weather season November 1 through March 15 by sheltering households in motel rooms. When the temperature drops below 34 degrees, the most vulnerable living on the streets, in their cars or in places without heat and are enrolled in coordinated entry waiting for housing will be offered a motel room for the night.
Working in collaboration with the North County Resource Navigator, we provide emergency cold weather shelter for the most vulnerable enrolled in Coordinated Entry. This includes: families with children, senior citizens and people with medical conditions.
Numbers of nights and people served for the 2020-21 season
49 Households including 65 adults and 22 children
36 Nights for a total of 760 bed nights with meals provided
252 Volunteer hours by coordinators and food preparation
Most are still unhoused and living in instability
We anticipate the number in need will rise in the 2021-22 season.
Your donation will provide a safe, warm space for our vulnerable neighbors currently living outdoors, in their cars or in places that do not have heat. By donating, you are partnering with businesses, churches, other organizations, individuals, the cities, and the county to provide not only shelter, but meals and access to laundry and other services.
