Property owners pledge housing units to homeless

News

A group of landlords and property owners got together, Tuesday, to focus on ways to cut down homelessness in Kern County.

The California Landlords Summit on Homelessness focused on how to open more housing for local homeless.

“Most of these individuals have already been matched up with housing vouchers, we just need the homes for them to live in,” said Mardi Sharples, a Voucher Program Administrator, for the Housing Authority, of the County of Kern.

The property owners attending the event pledged 47 housing units toward the goal of ending chronic homelessness in Kern County by February 2019.
