Volunteers the task force recruited, with additional help from HomeAid and Home Depot, rehabilitated the cottages last weekend, which were shortly thereafter OKed by building inspectors for habitation.
According to the Rancho Cordova Post, St. John's Shelter Program will be administering operations relating to the Mather bungalows. Michele Steeb, Executive Director of St. John's, also heads up the Winter Shelter Task Force.
It is hoped that eventually all but one or two of the 35 cottages can be fixed and made ready to serve as transitional housing for families.
