Rohnert Park DignityMoves

Labath Landing

In partnership with the The City of Rohnert Park and HomeFirst Services, we’re building private and dignified rooms for individuals experiencing homelessness. We need your support to bring this project to completion.

Project Overview

Our Impact

Until Labath Landing, there were no interim housing or shelter options within the City of Rohnert Park. Labath Landing will provide 60 dignified, private rooms for individuals and couples experiencing homelessness.

The unhoused population in the City has grown 5x since 2015.

Privacy and Dignity

This interim supportive housing community will be a place where people can come in out of the encampments and riverbed, restabilize, and begin down the path towards self-sufficiency. Each resident receives their own private room with doors that lock, so they can bring their pets and keep their belongings safe. Each unit features an ensuite bathroom, a desk to support their housing and job searches, and individually controlled heating and WiFi.

Labath Landing offers 60 private, dignified rooms enticing enough to attract even those who have resisted shelter placements in the past.

Onsite Supportive Services

HomeFirst Services, one of the leading homelessness services agencies in the Bay Area will be providing intensive case management and critical supportive services, as well as daily meals. Staff will work with the clients to address the root causes of homelessness. Staff will assist residents to obtain identification, enroll in Medi-Cal and other programs, and connect them to mental and behavioral healthcare. Case managers will connect them to job training and placement support. Most importantly the team will work tirelessly to help clients find sustainable housing.

Safety

HomeFirst services will provide 24/7 staffing trained in conflict de-escalation. All residents will be required to sign behavioral contracts and good neighbor agreements. There will be no loitering tolerated and walk-up services will not be provided and personal guests will not be allowed. HomeFirst Services prides itself on ensuring the surrounding neighborhood is clean and (insert another word). The surrounding area will soon notice a visible reduction in the number of people sleeping on the streets, as priority will be given to those who have been living within the City of Rohnert Park. Housing will be assigned through a centralized enrollment system in coordination with local outreach teams; There will be no walk-up admissions.
