Now we’ve got a ballgame.
With approval from the Yolo County Board of Supervisors and the West Sacramento City Council this week, the Mercy Coalition’s Winter Warming Centers pilot program was formally green-lighted for 2018-19. The program begins Dec. 2, initially utilizing five different church sites to provide overnight shelter for up to 20 homeless adults a night through March 22.
A special thanks to scores of servant-hearted community members who have cared for this population for many decades, for the congregations who asked to open their facilities, and for our partners in prayer, politics and all around West Sacramento for helping make this happen. Now the real work begins … and you can sign up for your volunteer shift right here.
