Elk Grove Opens Moon Creek Transitional House

Elk Grove Opens Moon Creek Transitional House

For families struggling to stay in safe housing, the City of Elk Grove opened its third transitional house on Moon Creek. Grace House and Meadow House are the other homes that Elk Grove has for homeless families.

The house has seven bedrooms, with the ability to accommodate up to three or four families. Originally, the house had three bedrooms before construction crews came in. The home is meant to house both adults and children. Many of the bedrooms have child-sized beds, with vinyl flooring for easy cleanup. Additionally, the house has 2,900 square feet.

Several organizations pitched in to make this transitional house a reality. These organizations include Sacramento Self Help Housing, Elk Grove HART, Reynen & Bardis Homes, and Wells Fargo. The organizations will also provide mentoring and support services to homeless families. About 80% of residents who have used Grace House and Meadow House have found permanent homes.

The City Council

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to commemorate the event. Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen, City Councilmember Kevin Spease, and City Councilmember Darren Suen also attended the event. Both Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen and former Mayor Gary Davis each donated five meals to families in need for the Tri-tip Fundraiser held by the Elk Grove Community Council.

“This mayor will not take credit for this. This mayor recognizes the partnerships that made something like this possible. Let’s give a shoutout to all of the great folks who are here today. As indicated by the number of partners involved in this project, addressing the problem of homelessness is something no one agency can do alone.”
