Five houses in Anderson and Shasta Lake in Shasta County, California, will be the first in the county to house homeless residents in a new program led by Hill Country Health and Wellness Center, a local medical nonprofit. The houses will accommodate a maximum of three people each and offer medical and other services to residents. The program is only open to people who do not have stable housing and who pass criminal background checks for the Section 8 rent subsidy program for low-income individuals. Hill Country will partner with the Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency to determine eligibility for the program, which is expected to begin in January. ADK Properties LLC, a subsidiary of K2 Development Company, has purchased and is renovating the houses.
