Emergency Shelter Needs One Last Push

khts_givingbackThe demand to keep up with the needs of our local homeless population has placed a significant dent in the budget of the SCV Emergency Winter Shelter.

The Santa Clarita Community Development Corporation (SCCDC) has begun to seek the help of our local faith congregations and the community at large to help close an impending budget deficit of $10,000 to $15,000 by the shelter’s closing date on March 16.

The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), a significant source of support for the shelter, is currently searching for funds to meet the shelter’s over-capacity financial needs.
“One night in January our count of single homeless clients reached 58 people. In no previous year have we ever seen even 45 clients on a single night,” said Tim Davis, Executive Director for the shelter. “We never imagined this level of need and so did not budget for it. The faith community of Santa Clarita has always been the greatest supporters of our efforts to assist the homeless. We are going to each of the more than 30 communities who actively support us and asking for their help with this urgent need.”
On December 23, the shelter surpassed it’s 40 cot arrangement. Each night after dinner, staff at the shelter sets up 10 additional cots for men in the dining room, allowing up to 49 single clients to stay at the shelter.
On January 23, the demand of 53 single clients at the SCV Emergency Winter Shelter called for extreme arrangements. They began taking all female clients to a local motel each night where the women slept.
At the end of January 2009, the shelter had seen an average of 26 clients each night. In comparison, the shelter had seen an average of 40 clients per night at the end of January 2010.
Officials at the shelter maintain that they have yet to turn anyone away, and after careful discussion have decided they will not turn anyone away before the season is over on March 16.
Contact Tim Davis at (661) 618-9278 to donate or for any questions.
