Bridge to Housing Move Day a Success!

(Woodland, CA) – Yesterday, just hours before the rain came, approximately 100 volunteers and staff moved 63 homeless individuals, along with their 40 pets, from the North Levee encampment in West Sacramento into temporary housing.

The move, along with provision of services, was a collaborative effort between Yolo County, Yolo County Housing, the City of West Sacramento and numerous private and non-profit partners.  Over the next 60 to 120 days, with $100,000 in financial support from Yolo County and the City of West Sacramento, along with private donations, these individuals will be housed and will receive assistance for benefits in which they may be eligible to prevent homelessness in the future.
