SHELTER, Inc. Operates Temporary Homeless Shelter

SHELTER, Inc. announced today that it will operate a temporary homeless shelter in Concord and is expanding homeless prevention services to keep more people in their homes during the COVID-19 public health crisis.

In partnership with Contra Costa County Health, Housing and Homeless Services, SHELTER, Inc. will operate a 65-SRO (Single Room Occupancy) homeless shelter at a local Concord motel. The motel is being transitioned to a homeless shelter to support sheltering in place for our most vulnerable homeless neighbors.

“As the virus spreads and takes its toll on people throughout California, our nation, and around the world; it is more important than ever for SHELTER, Inc. to continue providing these critically needed human services safety net to the most vulnerable in our communities”, said CEO John Eckstrom.
