SJ Flood Shelter Updates

Effective April 10, 2017 the Seven Trees Community Center shelter for displaced flood victims was closed. We are fortunate to have a strong partner in the City of San José, particularly the Parks, Recreation & Neighborhood Services, and Housing Department, to ensure high quality services. We've also been in daily contact with Mayor Sam Liccardo's office.

Some operational updates include: We hired three security guards per shift for 24-hour inside, outside and parking lot patrols; We’ve limited access for security to one single entrance with all alternate doors locked and alarmed all day and all night; Varied and culturally appropriate meals along with hourly snacks; Weekly visits from Valley Medical Center's backpack medicine program; Housing referrals through Catholic Charities; A donation annex with daily distribution of clothing and linens; and The redirection of long-term homeless guests affected by the flood to appropriate shelter facilities with appropriate services and case management. 


THANK YOU to all who donated to San Jose evacuees residing at The Seven Trees Community Center temporary shelter.
