Out of the cold
The Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition (in collaboration with local churches and the Salvation Army) is introducing a new program called "Out of the Cold," which will provide homeless individuals and families with a warm place for the night and a meal voucher when the temperature is 35 degrees or colder.
Those without homes who are interested in participating must meet at the Salvation Army San Angelo church area (122 West 2nd St.) by 4:30 p.m. when the temperature is anticipated to drop to 35 degrees or lower.
The program is in place today. For more information call Stan Carr at the Salvation Army at 214-417-3128.
Neighborhood & Family Services
The Neighborhood & Family Services Department was created to consolidate city neighborhood and family support functions and services, most notably neighborhood revitalization, neighborhood code compliance and health and education services for women, infants and children). During a reorganization in the fall of 2014, the animal control function was added because of the similarity in ensuring code compliance, public health and a quality of life standard in neighborhoods. The department is comprised of four divisions.
The Animal Services Division operates the animal shelter, investigates animal bites and allegations of animal cruelty, picks ups stray and dead animals, and accepts owned animals.
Community & Housing Support
The Community & Housing Support Division secures Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME grant funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to support the development of viable urban communities by expanding the supply of decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing for low- to moderate-income people.
The Code Compliance Division is responsible for proactively enforcing City ordinances regarding the health and safety of San Angelo's citizens. Code officers work with citizens on a daily basis to resolve code violations that impact the quality of life in San Angelo.
