MLK Village under construction
Three new projects under construction in Sacramento County will add about 140 housing units for homeless people later this year.
It’s part of the city and county of Sacramento’s Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness. Diane Luther oversees the plan. On Tuesday she gave county supervisors a first-year progress report.
"The initial goal was to put 218 units in place within five years. We’re on pace to put together 235 units within two years."
The new housing projects under construction are: Martin Luther King Village and Colonia San Martin Apartments in South Sacramento, and Ardenaire Apartments in the Arden area.
During its first year of operation, the Ten Year Plan helped 171 chronically homeless people get housing. They also get counseling to help solve the issues that caused them to be homeless in the first place. It’s paid for with state and federal funding and money from local businesses and developers.
