Noah's Community Village has partnered with EdenVillageUSA.org, to build a community for the chronically homeless and disabled here in Shasta County. Eden Village has several very successful villages already and we are very fortunate that this partnership includes their valuable experience, branding, training of our staff, web support to gain sponsorships and exposure, grant writing expertise, and all policies and procedures that have been worked thouroughly out to ensure the success of the newer villages. This project will make a visible impact in our community where we live and end homelessness for a significalnt number of our most vulnerable residents.
This is an affordable Permanent Supportive Housing, (PSH) project that follows the 'Housing First Model'. Our target population is the homeless and disabled that are never given the opportunity to rent through no fault of their own. Many of the most difficult to house individuals are due to a lack of rentals and the real disabilities and/or mental illness that these folks have. We are not serving, violent criminals, but vunerable and terrifed residents of our county. Many were displaced in the Northern California Fires or are simply living a life without a home due to the chronic loss of family.
Eden Villages, have radically changed the lives of the chronically homeless, while doing it affordably and with low operational costs. This has proven to benefit the communities economy where they are located, Homeless individuals can cost between $30,000 - $40,000 each year due to their frequent usage of public services. Eden Village can help to decrease the costs to our community caring for these homeless individuals by 60-75%. All together, Eden Village's serve the community, by providing a permanent solution to the homelessness crisis for so many in a sensible dignified way. With the support of our community and people who care all over the country, we too can make a difference and have an Eden Village as part of the solution for Shasta County. We hope that you will join us to make Shasta County, a place where no one has to sleep outside!
