These are some of the beds in the dorms at the homeless emergency services center at 555 Industrial Park Drive.

The Manteca City Council is being asked to approve spending $1,146,390 on two contracts to provide services for the homeless when they meet tonight at 6 p.m.

Both contracts are in connection with the emergency homeless shelter the city is operating at 555 Industrial Park Drive.

*$844,386 is for His Way Refuge to provide operation services from July 1, 2024 to June 20, 2025.

*$302,948 is for Shield Protection Group to provide 24/7 security from July 1 through Dec. 31 of this year.

Almost all of the money to fund the contracts is coming from state and federal grants.,

The center now operates 24 hours, 7 days a week, offering overnight shelter using the newly acquired dormitory modular units.

The new agreement will allow the services currently offered at the Center to continue.

Those services include resources during the day, available to both the unsheltered community and to those on the verge of being unsheltered:

* Overnight shelter

*Meals and food distribution

*Restroom and showers

*Clothing

*Haircuts

*Transportation

*Case Management

*Pet Kennels and food

*Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) intake and service tracking

*Mail services

*Services referrals

*Street Outreach

The City Council meets at 6 p.m. at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St.
