The Salvation Army in Napa Receives Approval for Culinary Academy Housing
Since the Napa Valley Training Academy opened in January 2017, it has helped many individuals that are at-risk and homeless learn job skills in the restaurant industry. Until now, the one thing missing from the program has been providing these students with a place to stay.
Not all of the students have access to housing -many have had to stay at The Salvation Army shelter or other facilities while trying to complete their studies.
The City Planning Commission recently approved a new manufactured building that will be able to house six culinary students. The Salvation Army was also able to acquire a two-bedroom house that is next door to the Frank Street property, where the academy is located. Together these two buildings will act as miniature dormitories for trainees enrolled in the 16-week program.
This project is expected to be completed by July of this year.
