The Chula Vista Village at Otay Ribbon Cutting Ceremony marked the opening of a new homeless bridge shelter to provide temporary housing and support services for San Diego’s unsheltered community. The project comprises 65 individual, prefabricated housing units and shared facilities. This innovative project aims to provide the essential needs of selected residents as they transition to permanent housing.
Each pet-friendly “tiny home” unit includes heating and air conditioning, electrical outlets, bedding, and essential furnishing donated by various organizations and businesses. In addition, the project features a cafeteria that offers meals, bathrooms and showers, laundry facilities, and onsite storage. Health care, mental health counseling, drug and alcohol treatment, and assistance securing permanent housing are available for the facility residents.
Turpin & Rattan Engineering, Inc. appreciates working with Platt/Whitelaw Architects, Inc. and the City of Chula Vista on this groundbreaking project that addresses the urgent needs of San Diego’s unsheltered community.
