• Shelter Outreach Plus Creates 100 @ 100 Project to Raise Urgently Needed Funds

    Shelter Outreach Plus, Monterey County’s largest provider of transitional housing and emergency shelter beds has created the 100 @ 100 Project to raise urgently needed funds to help sustain and expand local homeless solutions.

    In response to the need, Shelter Outreach Plus answers the call to find additional solutions to increasing local homelessness concerns. “We are trusting that many in our community with a heart for homeless issues, will step in to assist us in raising necessary funds for urgent local needs,” says Executive Director, Reyes Bonilla.

    The 100 @ 100 Project. During the month of May, Shelter Outreach Plus is looking for 100 persons in Salinas, 100 persons on the Monterey Peninsula, and 100 communities of faith in Monterey County to each give $100 to help with on-going efforts to positively impact and empower those facing homelessness in our area.  Will you be one of the 100?

    “With the expanded efforts of our 10 programs, including the addition of the Women in Transition Program (homeless single adult women) and the 12th Street Day Center (showers, laundry, computers, resources, case management), Shelter Outreach Plus is having more impact and seeing more lives changed,” says Executive Director, Reyes Bonilla. “Now more than ever,” he continues, “we need the financial partnership of those in our community with the vision to see Monterey County lead in empowering men, women, and children to break the cycle of homelessness and domestic violence.

    People may partner with the agency by giving online at www.ShelterOutreachPlus.org or by mail (PO Box 1340; Marina, CA 93933), or by calling the administration office at 831.384.3388.

    Shelter Outreach Plus houses and serves over 200 homeless men, women and children every night, 365 days a year. Whether reaching out in areas where homeless congregate, or providing emergency lodging, or mentoring a transitional housing client through a personalized case management plan, the people of Shelter Outreach Plus continue to generate community homeless solutions enabling clients to constructively work toward their positive, hope-filled future.
