Quick update on shelter this winter

I was able to hear only the last two minutes of Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson's 17 minute, 10:45am news conference outside City Hall, but that was enough to gather some important news:

Shelter this winter for the homeless will add 269 beds. That is a stunning achievement, more than th 150 beds added early last winter and in winters past and more than the 200 beds that existed at Winter Shelter at Cal Expo last spring, from April 6 to June 30.

In addition there will be a modest number of motel vouchers to supplement the 269 beds this winter.

There will be an event on November 5 providing additional information about winter shelter and safe ground.

Update. Other sources of news about shelter this winter and safe ground from facts revealed today:
