Winter Shelter (PADS)
P.A.D.S. (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) maintains a winter sleep program for the homeless that runs seven nights a week, from November 1st to March 31st. This program provides a warm, safe, sleep environment.
Client’s participation in the P.A.D.S. program is by invitation only. Applicants can register at the Samaritan Center or at the respected sleep site. Check-in and registration at the sleep sites is from 7:45 to 9:00 pm. Lights are turned out at 9:30 pm. Guest must be a SIMI VALLEY RESIDENT and provide proof of a negative TB test within the last 6 months.
Below is the following location schedule. You may also download the shelter calendar which includes the monthly Dinner Sites Schedule (pdf file). Please note that Knights of Columbus will continue to facilitate the Wednesday night PADS site except the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
If you have a large facility and would like to participate in hosting a P.A.D.S. sleep site, or would like to volunteer to help at a site, please contact Laraine Yates at 805.579.9166.
