Orange County may be getting its first year-round homeless shelter

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- The Orange County Board of Supervisors plans to buy a nearly 2-acre parcel of land that may eventually become the region's first year-round homeless shelter.

The proposed 200-bed shelter would be located in the 1000 block of North Kraemer Boulevard in Anaheim. Orange County's two largest homeless shelters are only open during winter.

The board agreed to start the process to acquire the $4.25-million property, starting the 90-day due diligence process to further examine the location.

Orange County Bureau Chief Eileen Frere has the details in the video above.
