Volunteers for Elk Grove's winter sanctuary acknowledged; Closing date extended by one month

Civic groups and individuals volunteering at Elk Grove's winter sanctuary were acknowledged during the Wednesday, March 16, Elk Grove City Council meeting.

During public comment on non-agenda items, Keith Diederich, chief executive officer of Roseville, Calif.-based The Gathering Inn, noted the various groups and individuals who donated their services. The Gathering Inn is the city's contracted Old Town Elk Grove facility manager.

Along with highlighting volunteers at the facility, two clients guided to housing offered remarks about the services. The comments of Diederich and the clients can be viewed in the video.

The city contacted The Gather Inn last year to operate the seasonal facility, which opened for clients on November 1 and was scheduled to close on March 31. During the city manager's update provided by deputy city manager Kara Reddig, it was reported that the facility will operate until April 30.

At a previous city council meeting, Elk Grove's housing manager, Sarah Bontrager, said the city will reopen the facility this November, although the location has yet to be selected. This year, the operation occurred in the city-owned former drug store on Waterman Road and Elk Grove Boulevard, which will be converted into the new Elk Grove Library.
