Expand year-round shelter capacity
Homeless Plan 2023


Sheltering is not just an extreme weather event; capacity is needed to shelter year-round so that those experiencing homelessness have the stability to address challenges leading to homelessness. 

Progress Update

Q3 updates:

  • Funding for low barrier shelter and Sierra Guest Home have shifted to the CoC and will become part of the CoC programming. Funding for the North San Juan warming shelter will also transfer to the CoC. The Sierra Roots contract for FY 23/24 is in progress for Western County warming shelter activities. Contract is in place to support Truckee Day Center operations for FY 23/24.
  • Continued to provide family housing and shelter options through the CalWORKS Housing Support Program and domestic violence shelter services through Community Beyond Violence.
  • Ongoing work is being done with Hospitality House to best use expanded capacity and limit amount of time in shelter. Funding opportunities for expanding shelter capacity are continuously considered. 
  • The Youth Committee met and outlined activities to benefit youth in the homeless response system. The CoC and the County are collaborating to disburse youth set aside funding allocated to the County through the Homeless Housing, Assistance, and Prevention (HHAP) program; projects selected will be in line with goals for youth outlined in the Homeless Action Plan and activities identified by the Youth Committee. The process for identifying projects will begin in October with contracts finalized n November through the CoC.
  • The County of Nevada, Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation, AMI Housing, and the USFS continue to make progress in opening the Hobart Mills location as a seasonal workforce Housing Pilot in the coming months. Eastern County warming center operations will be transferring to the CoC for funding support. 

Next Steps

  • Continue conversations with Hospitality House on how to best reduce time spent in the shelter.
