On Monday, Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) will host a grand opening ceremony for Delta Landing, a 172-unit interim housing site that will provide shelter and on-site services to help county residents experiencing homelessness to regain housing.
Delta Landing is one of the first projects completed with funding from California’s Homekey Program, which allowed Contra Costa County to purchase, renovate and transform a motel into interim housing.
The site was previously used to house homeless residents during the pandemic through the state’s Project Roomkey.
The facility is located at 2101 Loveridge Road, Pittsburg.
According to the county, Delta Landing helps Contra Costa to address critical need for more services for residents experiencing homelessness in the eastern part of the county. The most recent point-in-time count showed about 500 East County residents may be without shelter on any given night. Prior to Delta Landing, there were only 20 shelter beds available east of Concord in Contra Costa County.
- Last week, Antioch Mayor announced that through the Transitional Housing Ad-Hoc Committee, they are proposing $300k to be spent on housing services for homeless. The program, called the Louie Rocha Emergency Housing Plan, would be focused around getting homeless in the downtown area near the railroad tracks off the streets and into housing in the City of Pittsburg.
Brentwood Police Call Antioch’s proposed $300k Spend on Homeless Housing a Band-Aid Approach and rather than focus on shelter, the solution should be focused on alcohol and substance abuse which is the root issue they see on the streets.
