This program will serve homeless residents in the shelter; including men, women, families with minor-aged children, and adult couples who have varying lengths of residency.

As the program will include children, Applicants must pass the Live Scan background check. Candidates are eligible regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, gender identification, military status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical ability. You do not need to be a resident of Santa Ana to make a submission.
The total budget for this 6-month pilot project is $6,500, with a possible extension of 6 months with an additional $6,500, subject to evaluation of program. This allocation is for all costs associated with the project, including but not limited to materials, equipment, labor, permits, insurance, taxes, travel, installation, shipping, and written and photographic documentation of the completed project.
