Grant funds new homeless shelter services

Susana Romo can tell story after story about the homeless people she serves in Sonoma Valley.

A mom with six children living in a Chevy Suburban, sleeping in parking lots or on side streets, just trying to find a place to stay without being noticed.

A man who works a minimum-wage job at a fast food restaurant but can’t afford a place to live.

A grandmother, taking care of her three grandkids, who was evicted from her house.

Romo, who is a case manager and the only full-time staff member at Sonoma Overnight Support (SOS), said in the last year, homelessness in the Valley has increased exponentially.
