I thought I would share some good news with you.
Sonoma Overnight Support has placed three homeless clients into Los Guilicos Village, temporary housing opened by the County on Pythian Road to take the overflow of homeless from the Joe Rodota Trail. Special thanks to Tom La Grave of Sonoma Valley Community Health Center, Mayor Logan Harvey, and City Councilmember Madolyn Agrimonti for their help.
Los Guilicos Village has 60 personal shelters. Each 64 sq. ft. unit features a door with a lock, a window, a bunk bed, and shelves for storage. The St. Vincent de Paul Society supplies medical care, 24-hour security, showers, and a dining area.
These longtime Sonoma residents now have their own tiny huts at Los Guilicos, and there’s even a dog run for Lettie. They report that they “love it there,” but they still come back for SOS’s meals at the Sonoma Community Springs Hall.
Speaking of meals, here are some statistics:
As we enter the fifth month of this pandemic, try to keep in mind the words of Nelson Mandela: “May your choices affect your hopes and not your fears.”
As the number of people coming to us for food continues to grow, we hope that you will make the choice to helpus feed the hungry. You can donate online from the comfort of your home or mail us a check, and help us make a difference.
