Bridge to Home Press Conference: Sewer, Water Hook-Up Ribbon Cutting & Capital Campaign Launch

Bridge to Home officials have launched a community-wide capital campaign with a virtual ribbon-cutting event on March 22, 2021 at 12 p.m.This event will mark the completion of the sewer and water hook-up to the agency’s site on Drayton Street as the first step in the construction of a new homeless shelter facility for this area.

Last week, the City of Santa Clarita’s Planning Commission recommended approval of the plans for the facility and the City Council will consider the project in the coming weeks. Construction is anticipated to begin this summer with completion in the fall of 2022. The facility will house 60 individuals and, in the first family shelter in this region, there will be accommodations for eight families.

With the transition from a nighttime winter shelter open four months a year to a year-round 24/7 facility, the focus of BTH has shifted from simply providing food and shelter to providing intensive case management services. These are designed to help people find and retain permanent housing, engage in job preparation and education, and address the issues that cause homelessness. The current facility, consisting of six modular former classroom buildings, does not have the space to support this expanded mission or health distancing requirements.

The virtual ribbon-cutting will premiere on  Bridge to Home’s Facebook page as well as the Facebook pages for SCVTV Santa ClaritaCity of Santa Clarita GovernmentKHTS RadioSanta Clarita Valley Signal, and Supervisor Kathryn Barger, as well as SCVTV’s Apple TV & Roku appsscvtv.com, Spectrum 20 and AT&T 99
