This program provided showers to 32 individuals, resulting in an average cost of $281 per shower. The program received positive feedback and was considered successful by the Siskiyou County Behavioral Health. As a result, they have asked the board of supervisors for $109,200 to support 12 additional shower events, spanning from February 1st to June 30th. This financial allocation reflects the board’s recognition of the program’s effectiveness and their commitment to providing necessary hygiene facilities for the community.
The new contract costs for the event vary depending on the duration. For a one-day event, the cost is set at $11,550. However, for a 12-event contract, the cost ranges between $8,200 and $9,100.
