RED BLUFF, Calif. – A Red Bluff nonprofit is now set to build a Navigation Program and homeless shelter for Tehama County residents in need of support.

LP Building Solutions (LP), a leader in high-performance building products, announced Wednesday the donation of a seven-acre property located at 400 Reeds Avenue in Red Bluff, to The Poor and the Homeless (P.A.T.H.) Tehama County Coalition, a local nonprofit working to prevent and alleviate homelessness in the area.

“Those of us at P.A.T.H. are ecstatic over the fantastic generosity of LP Building Solutions in their donation of property to PATH, allowing us to finally build a permanent homeless shelter for our community,” said P.A.T.H. President E.C. Ross. “For over 20 years, we’ve relied on the generosity of local churches to house our transient shelter as it moved from one location to the next every few months. We would not have been successful without their support and will be forever grateful to those churches."

In 2017, a Housing and Homeless Stakeholders Collaborative was established in Tehama County to address the growing problem of homelessness in the community. The task force presented a 10-year plan to end homelessness that was adopted by the Tehama County Board of Supervisors, and the cities of Red Bluff, Corning, and Tehama.

During the presentation, officials said the development of a Navigation Center was identified as one of the first steps to give individuals an opportunity to begin the journey to self-sufficiency.

Recognizing the limited number of undeveloped parcels with the proper zoning, LP said they were pleased to step forward to donate the land, which will be used for a multi-phase project to include the Navigation Center, temporary housing, and common areas for job skills development and recreation.

The facilities will serve the disadvantaged citizens of the community, including veterans, seniors, families, and youth now living unsheltered in Tehama County.

The site will provide services to help participants to re-enter productive society, LP officials said. This will include the following: on-site medical care, substance abuse treatment, mental health assessments, application assistance for social service benefits, job training and job application assistance, pet care and pet obedience training, veterinary services, permanent housing case management, literacy skills, and more.
