Thanks and kudos to the visionaries (Don Barr, John Barton, Litsie Indergand, and others) who brought the Opportunity Center into reality. This is a wonderful resource in our community. Congratulations on 10 years!
Yes, the Opportunity Center has and continues to be a wonderful resource for the community. I congratulate those who have championed the cause of housing for the homeless in Palo Alto. When the adjacent parcel with two retail shops (shoe + audio sales) was being re-developed to be single-, maybe two-story medical offices and a ground level parking lot, I was wondering why this parcel could not have been annexed/purchased by those who could and would build a companion to the existing Opportunity Center. It seems the medical offices could have been integrated into the new higher building with more stories and underground parking. May anyone know how or why this opportunity was missed?
I've been homeless for 10 years. Am on SSI income only. I'm disabled, and would like to find a studio, or apartment as soon as possible. How can I do so on $950/month which is my total SSI income. Any/all help would be very much appreciated!
@Robin, nice apartments in Des Moines start at the $600 range.
I assume SSI income does not depend on state of residence.
