Santa Cruz homeless get 180 degree life change

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that, based on a national push to provide stable housing for the homeless and then address obstacles to employment, 180/180 leaders plan to provide housing for 180 people by July 2014 and turn their lives around 180 degrees. The programme aims to help those with longterm medical problems and who have been chronically homeless for some time.

With no new source of money for Santa Cruz County’s 180/180 project, the campaign has brought together leaders from the Santa Cruz Homeless Services Center, the county’s Homeless Persons Health Project and three nonprofits: the Santa Cruz Community Counseling Center, Santa Cruz AIDS project, and the behavioral health agency Front St. Inc.

The first 10 people have now been homed.
