PHASE 2 BREAKS GROUND!
Last month we broke ground on the 61 permanent supportive
housing units! The pre-built micro-houses will sit next to the East
Beamer Way Shelter. The 400 to 500-sq.-ft. micro-homes will include
a living room, kitchen with small oven, microwave, and refrigerator,
one or two bedrooms with closet, stackable washer and dryer, and a
restroom with shower. Large windows will allow for natural light and
plenty of sun to shine through. The units will be constructed by
Cutting Edge Modular, Inc. in Woodland and built to the CA Building
Standards for Housing. Friends of the Mission is overseeing the color
palette for both the interior and exterior walls. Soft colors will evoke
peace and joy inside the homes, while vibrant colors and wall murals
will radiate from the exterior walls.
People who are experiencing chronic homelessness and are in need
of on-site supportive services will reside in the housing community.
Case management will be offered by Fourth & Hope and agency
“So the future, what it will look like out here is really a hub of hope,
we’ll call it,” said Doug Zeck, the executive director for Fourth & Hope.
“A place that if someone’s in crisis and finding themselves unhoused,
they can come here, they can access shelter services, day services,
and then connect with case managers and potentially be navigated
into the 61 permanent supportive housing units.”
