WellSpace Health’s future campus in South Sacramento could be among the first sites to host a tiny-home village as part of the state’s latest plan to combat homelessness.
On Wednesday, city, county and state officials gathered at the nonprofit’s 13-acre property at 6820 Stockton Blvd. to announce that the site will host 175 of the 350 tiny homes that Gov. Gavin Newsom promised to Sacramento earlier this year, as part of a larger plan to buy 1,200 tiny homes to help cities across the state offer unsheltered people a place to stay.
“It’s going to become a model for how we build these multi-service center campuses, not only throughout the Sacramento region, but throughout the state of California,” Mayor Darrell Steinberg said, during the media event.
