County approves funding for 50 beds this winter, beginning Dec 1

In a report that seems dire and stinting on the part of the County of Sacramento, the Sac Bee tells us that that $150,000 has been "found" to provide winter beds for homeless people, from December 1 through March 31.

Two shelters will provide 25 beds each for the four-month period. The Volunteers of American will manage the facilities at 3547 Myrtle Ave., in North Highlands, and 3671 Fifth Ave., in Sacramento. There is no news as for what category of homeless each facility is designated, but judging by the small number of beds, it is likely that one facility is for solo men, and the other for solo women.

There is nothing yet up at the VOA of Northern California website on the newly funded shelters.
