On September 12, 2019 Sonoma County Vintners Foundation will present The Society of St. Vincent de Paul with a $250,000 grant to support the Gold Coin Motel housing project.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, District Council of Sonoma County, Inc. (SVDP) purchased the Gold Coin Motel, located at 2400 Mendocino Avenue, in Santa Rosa, California. With this grant and additional funding, they plan to convert all 56-units into permanent supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness, including people who have become homeless as a result of the 2017 Fires, complete with wraparound supportive services to support residents’ needs, including financial needs, permanent housing, and preventative healthcare.
The Sonoma County Vintners Foundation Community Grants program targets: literacy, education, health and human services, the environment and arts and culture. For 2018, the foundation added fire relief efforts as one of their focus areas. This grant is part of Sonoma County Vintners Foundation’s continued commitment to Sonoma County’s charitable nonprofits.
