The City of Sacramento has launched a “Safe Parking” site in a parking lot on the southern section of Front Street.
Known as South Front Street Safe Parking, the site is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can host approximately 60 vehicles, depending on their sizes.
The site, which is staffed around the clock, also offers port-a-potties, storage and meal access. Case managers work out of a trailer on site, offering social-services support and housing coordination.
Everyone utilizing the safe parking site will be entered into the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), connecting them with additional service providers in the area.
The City's Safe Ground site at W and Sixth streets also features a safe-parking area.
