In April, 2022, the City Council created a Homeless Solutions division to address chronic homelessness in the City of Redlands. The Homeless Solutions Division is responsible for connecting persons experiencing homelessness in the City with appropriate resources.
The Homeless Solutions Division partners with local nonprofit and government entities to connect homeless persons with resources such as shelter, transitional housing, food assistance, outreach services, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment, and more.
Step Up in Redlands
In 2022, the State of California awarded the “Project Home Key” grant in the amount of $30 million to the City of Redlands and its partners Shangri-La Industries and Step Up on Second, Inc. to purchase the former Good Nite Inn and convert it into 98 Studio Units for long term permanent supportive housing units for chronically homeless individuals in the City.
Shangri-La Industries is the development firm that will own and operate the property. Step Up on Second Inc. will provide onsite case management and property management services to all residents at Step Up in Redlands.
The City currently contracts with local nonprofits to provide “Street Outreach” services to homeless persons in the City. Street Outreach is conducted by nonprofit outreach teams to engage homeless persons in the field (ex. streets, river bottom, parks) and assist with connecting homeless persons with appropriate resources (ex. shelter, transitional housing, substance abuse treatment, identification card voucher, etc.).
If in need of outreach services, please call 909-761-5196
