Livermore applied for and received a Section 108 loan from HUD to cover a majority of the costs. The three Cities are repaying the loan with their annual CDBG allocation. The shelter was renamed Sojourner House (in honor of Sojourner Truth) and re-opened in October 2002, one year after the announcement was made to close the facility. While the Shelter was being acquired and rehabilitated, the City worked closely and provided CDBG funds to the Haven and the Interfaith Poverty Forum to operate the Winter Relief program. Winter Relief was an interim program that provided housing and assistance to homeless families. City of Livermore gives CDBG staff support to the HOPE Van, a program within a recreational vehicle providing medical, psychiatric, and case management services to homeless persons where they congregate within the community.
