The Access Center Visioning Proposal was submitted and approved by Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors on February 27, 2018. The proposal included initiating the planning process for a permanent Access Center, while opening a Temporary Emergency Shelter and Day Center as an immediate action. The Temporary Emergency Shelter and Day Center will be unique as the only “low barrier” shelter in Stanislaus County. It will house 60 individuals with accommodations for their partners, pets and possessions. The details of the project are still under development, but the goal is to open the shelter by summer of 2018.
