Many members of our growing community are not aware of Santa Clarita’s homeless shelter. With our economy’s present state, Santa Clarita’s homeless population is growing rapidly. The Santa Clarita Homeless Shelter is currently set up as a winter shelter operating December 1st through March 15th. The shelter provides a warm and safe shelter, food, clothing, medical and job/housing search resources to its clients. The shelter moved to Drayton Street in Newhall this season and expanded to include a total of 54 cots. The shelter has welcomed about 50 clients on average every night during the 2010-2011 season.
The Shelter’s top campaign this year is the 3,000 Friends Campaign. Our goal is to turn our Emergency Winter Shelter into a year-round facility. A $10 monthly donation would provide the support that our shelter needs to provide services and case management help year-round. See the 3,000 Friends link on our homepage at www.santaclaritashelter.com.
Please check out our video, Lost & Found, which captures the mission of our shelter and the growing needs of our homeless population that we are committed to meeting!
