Background and Discussion:
On May 11, 2021, Commissioners Court approved the Budget Office's (OMB) recommendations on Rollover requests. OMB recommended that $390,000 go to operations projects at Harris County Resources for Children and Adults (HCRCA). Included in the $390,000 was a request to replace the beds in the Kinder Emergency Shelter. HCRCA operates a 24 hour emergency shelter for youth who are in between placements or have no other place to stay. There are 24 beds that accommodate up to 12 females and 12 males.

Expected Impact:
The lifecycle of the current furniture is expired and beyond repair. The inspected by Child Care Licensing and need to have furniture that is in compliance with licensing guidelines. Replacement of the beds in the Emergency Shelter is essential to maintain a pleasant and comfortable environment for youth who are not living in their own homes or foster care homes.


Alternative Options:
There are no viable alternatives for this request. The beds need to be new and all 24 need to be the same. This does not exist in Harris County's furniture surplus.
