Seeing the need for an additional North County cold weather shelter, Supervisor Simitian led a public-private partnership creating 50 beds for homeless families and single women at Trinity United Methodist Church in downtown Mountain View. Additionally, the shelter became the cornerstone of a homeless resource center housed at the church. With funding from the County to help remodel the shelter's commercial kitchen, the site will offer a culinary skills job training program and an expanded free meal program, as well as showers and on-site case management.
