DHA issued motel vouchers beginning Tuesday to highly vulnerable unsheltered persons. The respite shelter program will remain active through July 1.
Participants in the weather respite sheltering program will work with their referring party on transportation to and from the motel and are allowed to bring partners, pets and possessions with them for the duration of their stay. Capacity will depend on motel room availability at the County’s partner motels.
