As head of the nonprofit organization that operates the Santa Clarita Valley's only emergency winter shelter since 1995, Tim Davis has worked tirelessly and selflessly on behalf of people in need in our community for more than a decade and a half.
It’s no overstatement to say that without his steady leadership and guidance the past decade and a half, what's now known as the Bridge to Home shelter — which helped nearly 300 people aka clients (including families) during the 2011-2012 season — would not likely exist.
That’s why Davis is Mercedes-Benz of Valencia’s latest Santa Clarita Unsung Hero.
