The County of Santa Clara is hosting a virtual community meeting today from 6 to 7:30 p.m. about a proposal for a temporary housing project slated for the vacant property at the corner of Benton and Lawrence Expressway in Santa Clara.
The County of Santa Clara and LifeMoves are working to create more shelter for unhoused people. The proposed project would have 80-120 units including on-site support services for people staying there.
According to their website, LifeMoves “is dedicated to helping individuals and families experiencing homelessness to return to stable housing and self-sufficiency. We do this by providing interim housing, supportive services, and building collaborative partnerships.”
LifeMoves opened a temporary housing project in Mountain View in 2021, with other projects slated to open in Redwood City, Palo Alto and San Jose soon.
