Homeless Shelter Crisis Declared in Sacramento County
SACRAMENTO -- On Tuesday, the County Board of Supervisors declared a shelter crisis in Sacramento. The move has opened the door for $20 million in state funding to be shared between the county and the city. "First we’re going to expand the sheltering. We know we have too many unsheltered people and if we can get people stabilized and sheltered we can begin helping them find housing and get other services they need," said Sacramento County's Director of Homeless Initiatives Cindy Cavanaugh.
