SCV Winter Shelter
Bret Wims, Anette Guzman, Tim Davis, & Janice Murray
On November 14, 2011, KHTS was pleased to welcome The Santa Clarita Valley Winter Shelter to the KHTS Community Resource Kiosk. Tim Davis, Anette Guzman, & Bret Wims were featured on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight - hosted by Janice Murray.
The KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight airs Mondays at 10am on AM-1220 KHTS.
As one of the fastest-growing communities in the United States, the Santa Clarita Valley is increasingly challenged to fund the social services required by its rapidly developing society. With public funds scarce for social programs, the Santa Clarita Community Development Corporation (SCCDC) has taken a primary role in meeting the needs of the hungry and homeless in this community.
The principal activity of the SCCDC is the operation of its Santa Clarita Emergency Winter Shelter (EWS). The EWS assists people with the help they need to improve their individual or family circumstances.
Open from approximately Dec.1 through March 15 each year, the EWS provides shelter, food, clothing, medical and mental services as well as other assistance and referrals to its clients.
Additionally, because minors are not permitted to stay at the EWS, qualifying local families with children receive shelter in a local motel through the SCCDC's voucher program.
The assistance that the EWS provides is a direct result of its many supporters and volunteers. In order to continue helping our hungry and homeless neighbors, we encourage you to become a volunteer for the EWS or to make a donation today.
KHTS would like to thank Tim Davis, Anette Guzman, & Bret Wims for stopping by the KHTS Community Resource Kiosk.
