Good Samaritan Shelter Getting $475,000 in Grants

The county supervisors unanimously voted 6/7 to allot $475,000 in federal housing grants to the Good Samaritan Shelter to purchase and rehabilitate for formerly homeless veterans a six-bedroom residence in Orcutt. Two neighbors objected, voicing concerns about safety, among other things. Supervisor Peter Adam, who supported the motion noting the minimal opposition, asked County Counsel if criteria — clean and sober or strictly vets only, for instance — could be stipulated as part of the deal. The answer was no. However, county officials could work out a voluntary agreement with Good Samaritan.
