Homeless partnership demonstrates success

SBVWCD Newsletter

A two-year partnership between the District and Steps4Life Community Services is showing a 75% success rate in helping people get back on their feet after experiencing homelessness. The District in 2019 entered into a mutually beneficial partnership to provide a house for the nonprofit’s transitional programming in exchange for help establishing a homeless policy and training for district employees. To date, 25 people have successfully graduated from the program, with many enjoying self-sufficiency and employment with local businesses. Eight participants have either left the program or been transferred to higher levels of care.
