Funds will help keep homeless Triage Center open
From a City of Sacramento Press Release
Sacramento, Calif. — Mayor Darrell Steinberg announced Monday that investments from Sutter Health Valley Area and a private donor will allow the city’s Triage Center in North Sacramento to remain open through the end of August. The shelter, run by Volunteers of America, had been winding down operations in anticipation of closing May 31.
Sutter Health has committed $1 million toward funding the Triage Center for the next three months. The family of Helene and David S. Taylor has also made a generous donation.
In addition, Sutter Health is investing another $1.3 million to support the City as it creates longer-term emergency triage shelters to replace the Triage Center when it closes. City and Sutter Health staff members have been exploring strategies employed by other cities, including San Diego and San Francisco, which use large portable structures that can be erected quickly and house hundreds of people.
