Homeless Shelter Asks Community to Be Part of the Solution to Homelessness

VICTORVILLE – High Desert Homeless Services (HDHS) serves 55 men, women, and children providing the shelter, resources, training, and support needed to help clients successfully gain and maintain permanent housing. The shelter offers a 30-90 program where all of the client’s needs are provided.

Keeping the shelter running is costly, and although HDHS does receive some funding and donations, it only covers a portion of the operating expenses. The shelter needs the support of the community through donations and supporting the fundraisers. By supporting the fundraising events, the person/people who do become part of the solution to homelessness in the County of San Bernardino shelter officials said.
