Today, BACS was thrilled to welcome California Governor Gavin Newsom visited to our Vulnerable Unhoused Hotel in Pittsburg, Contra Costa County for a statewide budget update. The new budget will dedicate significant resources for capital/acquisition and services to counties and cities. Governor Newsom also updated the state on COVID-19, reinforcing his commitment to our unhoused community members.
Governor Newsom chose to come back to BACS after he visited and made an historic announcement last year about his prioritization of resources to the unhoused community – and came back to see us again today, a year later, to hold true on his commitment to see the resources he committed in action.
BACS’ Vulnerable Unhoused Hotel in Contra Costa County ramped up in less than a week, and currently is home to 170 community members experiencing homelessness who are at-risk of COVID-19. BACS quickly pioneered this new model for our community members, in partnership with the City of Pittsburg and Contra Costa County, and will be part of the vision of ensuring these community members do not go back to the streets after their stay.
During this pandemic, we have all learned the value of our homes – there is no “shelter in place” without shelter.
Our mission is to uplift under-served individuals and their families by doing whatever it takes.
