The process of community reintegration after a stint of homelessness is complex and tasking on an individual or family. When we place a client in one of our interim or shared housing units SSHH promises to provide a stable and supportive environment so the program participant can grow and our transitional service providers can be safe and effective. As the managing organization, SSHH communicates directly to the landlords to fund any repairs, furnishings, and services, which simultaneously allows the guests to focus on reintegration and fosters a trusting partnership between SSHH and the property owners.
Upkeep is the single largest expense within our housing programs. Your donations, in support of this program, will directly impact the quality of life and safety of those involved in our interim housing units AND give SSHH the opportunity to create, sustain, and expand upon our relationships with our property-owning partners.

Local HART groups (homeless assistance resource teams) are in need of volunteers. Active HART chapters are located in Elk Grove, Carmichael, Citrus Heights, Rancho Cordova, Folsom, Arden Arcade, South Sacramento, North Sacramento, and Midtown Sacramento. Take action in creating resources for those most vulnerable by getting involved with HART. If there is currently no HART in your neighborhood, contact us, and let's get it started. Please see the website www.hartstogether.org or our program description page for more information!
HART is expanding and is in need of start-up funding. There are currently nine independent HART organizations across Sacramento. We have plans to assist in the formation of several new HART groups throughout the Sacramento region including two in the unincorporated areas of the County. HART groups provide Winter Shelters or respite center in each of their communities as well as work to create local solutions to identifiable problems related to homelessness. For example, three of the HART groups have programs to help homeless students in our local school districts.
One of our transitional houses has no government or grant funding. It houses ten clients, five women, and five men. It is financed strictly by donations and can always use funds for case management, food, rent and utilities. It takes some of the most vulnerable off the streets of Sacramento and provides them a safe haven.
We are always in need of volunteers for housing counseling and mentorship. You can also get involved and join a Homeless Assistance Team in your neighborhood (Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, Citrus Heights, Carmichael, and Folsom). If there is currently no HART in your neighborhood, contact us and let's start a HART in your neighborhood!
