County supervisor Joel Anderson attended the grand opening of the safe parking lot, which marks the first county-operated emergency shelter in the unincorporated region of San Diego.

“This safe parking lot is an incredibly important step in the right direction towards solving the homeless issue,” the District 2 supervisor said. “The program will provide these individuals with two hot meals a day, restrooms, hygiene facilities, 24/7 security and a membership to the local YMCA.”
