What type of shelter must Tustin create?

A minimum 50-bed, emergency homeless shelter facility that is ADA accessible and serves homeless men, women, and families from within Tustin only.  Other cities will not be able to bring their homeless individuals to Tustin’s shelter.  The facility’s primary focus is assisting program participants with creating a housing plan, making connections to housing resources and finding transitional and permanent housing as soon as possible.
