If successful, will additional locations be set up?

If we find Pallets prove to be a viable and successful way to shelter and create stability for our homeless residents, the City would be open to expanding this location or working to develop a site in a different location.  In addition, the City would like to explore if Pallet Shelters could support students and families who are homeless.
