BACKGROUND:
San Mateo County maintains a homeless crisis response system that aims to prevent homelessness whenever possible and to assist people experiencing homelessness with returning to permanent housing as quickly as possible. Homeless shelters are one key component to a comprehensive homeless crisis response system.

After obtaining Board approval on June 27, 2017, by Resolution No. 075291, the County entered into an agreement with Samaritan House for the term of July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2020 and a total obligation amount not to exceed $1,800,980 to operate the Safe Harbor shelter and provide shelter services to San Mateo County residents experiencing homelessness.

After obtaining Board approval on January 29, 2019, by Resolution No. 076408, the parties amended the agreement to increase the total obligation amount by $187,250 for a new total obligation amount not to exceed $1,988,230, with no change to the term, to cover the operational cost deficit resulting from a loss of federal Department of Housing and Urban Development Continuum of Care grant funding.

After obtaining Board approval on June 30, 2020, by Resolution No. 077558, the parties further amended the agreement to increase the total obligation amount by $1,495,237, for a new total obligation amount not to exceed $3,483,467, to increase the term by two years for a new term of July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2022, and replace certain exhibits, to continue to operate a shelter and provide homeless services.
