SSHH works with families and individuals that have exceedingly low-incomes, and are on fixed incomes, unemployed, underemployed, or employed in low wage jobs. Households at these income levels face extreme barriers in locating and maintaining housing in the Sacramento area, where average rents are currently rising at a rapid rate. SSHH provides immediate assistance to this population through direct service while also seeking long-term answers to the affordable housing crisis through ongoing advocacy, outreach, and continued program expansion. Some of our current programs include temporary and permanent housing, housing location and counseling, affordable housing research, financial education, landlord-tenant helpline, community engagement, and outreach services. We work with over 20,000 households a year and partner with numerous organizations such as Dignity Health, WellSpace, HART (Homeless Assistance Resource Team), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the City and County of Sacramento.
We do outreach across Sacramento County. We receive phone calls every day from all over the region; many clients and callers use our housing database. We provide housing counseling at ten different locations; we work with and advise Homeless Assistance Resource Teams (HART) in Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, Citrus Heights, Carmichael, North Sacramento, South Sacramento, Arden Arcade, and Folsom - all of which have their own winter shelters; and outreach navigators.
