A new women's shelter

There is some good news in regard to the adequate-shelter-this-winter problem that will soon take command of our full attention here in Homeless World Sacramento:  a new shelter for solo women is very very likely to go "on line" soon, hopefully before the first blast of extreme coldness and wetness.

Jeff vonKaenel, the all-things power behind Sacramento News & Review writes in his column this week
Earlier that week, Moe Mohanna had taken me on a tour of his new homeless shelter for single women near the Loaves & Fishes complex. This new and controversial shelter has not yet been approved by the city, but it could certainly help provide much-needed housing this winter.
Please, please approve the shelter — dammit — city. This is NOT a year to be choosy.

I don't know what the issues are with respect to this new shelter, but any bed is a good bed, pretty much, in these economically-troubled times.  And since Moe Mohanna has sawbucks aplenty, I would expect that this new shelter is more-than-adequately adequate, despite MM's bit of a reputation for having a few not-up-to-code properties downtown, from time-to-time.

That's an all too rare bit of good news for the Sacramento homeless community.
