SACRAMENTO – Today, Governor Gavin Newson announced his adoption of Orange County Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva’s proposal that seeks to provide options at the State’s Fairview Developmental Center, for Orange County’s homeless.

To address the immediate crisis of homelessness and severe medically ill Orange County residents, the Governor has included authorization to move forward to house and treat approximately 200 OC residents who have no shelter, security or medical treatment.

Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva, author of Assembly Bill 1295, which is reflected in the Governor’s budget proposal, was humbled and quick to praise the Governor’s support for the consideration of the Fairview state property for Orange County’s neediest and despairing residents.  The Assemblywoman stated that, “These men and women are our hidden neighbors; they come from all over Orange County, and need shelter and medical care, in order to find stability and hope.”
