His Way Recovery House — a nonprofit with a successful history in Manteca of helping people deal with substance abuse — is poised to take over the city’s emergency homeless shelter on Sept. 1.
The City Council when they meet Monday, Aug. 29, at 5 p.m. is being asked to approve a $777,616 agreement for His Way Recovery to operate the shelter through June 30, 2023.
His Way Recovery House currently has 11 homes in Manteca with plans to open several more in the future.
Inner City Action had been operating the shelter at 555 Industrial Park Drive since June 2, 2021 after the departure of the Turlock Gospel Mission.
On March 15, 2022, the council approved a contract extension with Inner City Action to continue operation of the Center from June 28, 2022 through June 30, 2023. In late July Inner City Action informed the city of their intent to terminate the agreement with the city, per the agreement terms
Inner City Action removed all guests, staff, and fully exited the site on Aug. 9. The non-profit is now operating a similar for the City of Lodi.
The city vetted two non-profits to replace Inner City Action.
The contract will be paid for with $715,616 in general fund money and $62,000 in pass-through federal funds.
The city is seeking other sources of funds to reduce the amount needed to be taken from the general fund to operate the shelter through June 30, 2022.
