SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, September 11, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Overhead view gives a glimpse of the scale of San Jose’s first Emergency Interim Housing facilities opening this week at Bernal and Monterey Hwy.

The interior of each unit has a room fitted with a bed, table and chair along with a separate 3-piece private bathroom.

WHAT: HomeFirst Services, a leader in ending homelessness in Santa Clara County, is holding the grand opening for the first of two Emergency Interim Housing sites.

In response to the COVID-19 emergency and the City of San José shelter crisis declaration, the City has developed Emergency Interim Housing (EIH) communities to help protect unhoused people from disease, slow the spread of COVID-19, and expand the City's interim housing capacity after the emergency recedes. Unhoused individuals are vulnerable to COVID-19 and unhealthy air quality due to the fires; the city and HomeFirst Services are taking necessary and urgent action to get this housing site open.
