Orange County Opens First Year-Round Shelter

The first year-round shelter in Orange County is now open, as reported this week in the Orange County Register. The new shelter and service site, Bridges at Kraemer Place in Anaheim, will focus on offering resources tailored to individual needs, such as reconnecting them to family or assisting with rent-subsidized permanent supportive housing.

A dedication ceremony was held Thursday, May 4, and the first phase of residents began moving in on Friday. About 20 individuals are expected to move in during the first phase, and when fully completed, the shelter will house 200 beds, showers and restrooms, a kitchen, and health clinic. As homeless numbers have increased in recent years, this shelter will help meet an important need in getting more people off the streets.
