Oakland opened the gates to its first “safe haven” city-sanctioned and operated homeless encampment Monday.
The encampment occupies what was an empty lot between Sixth and Brush streets and Seventh and Castro streets. It features 20 modular units similar to “Tuff Sheds,” designed to house 40 people for up to six months at a time. The encampment will offer a variety of services aimed at getting homeless people into more permanent housing. (East Bay Times)
