The Sacramento Housing Alliance is dedicated to ending homelessness by assuring that all Sacramentans have permanent housing and services designed to meet the needs of those experiencing homelessness.
Currently, our community lacks sufficient homeless and housing programs to meet the needs of all our homeless population. Many people are left without access to basic emergency shelter and are forced to live and sleep outdoors. The increase of appropriate services, emergency shelter, and permanent supportive housing are of utmost concern to SHA and the work we do. We also advocate for the decriminalization of homelessness and human and civil rights.
Sacramento Homeless Organizing Committee
SHA serves as a fiscal sponsor for the Sacramento Homeless Organizing Committee (SHOC), an organization dedicated to providing a voice and an avenue for homeless people to advocate for themselves and their community. SHOC has a seat on our board and we support them in many ways, as they provide us with a strong voice for the concerns of homeless people. SHOC also publishes a bi-monthly street newspaper, Homeward Street Journal.
Sacramento Loaves & Fishes
Without passing judgment, and in a spirit of love and hospitality, Loaves & Fishes feeds the hungry and shelters the homeless. This organization provides an oasis of welcome, safety, and cleanliness for homeless men, women and children seeking survival services.
Safe Ground was founded in December 2008 by homeless leaders of Sacramento California’s 2008-2009 Tent City encampment along the American River Parkway near downtown Sacramento. Today Safe Ground continues to advocate for unsheltered homeless adults who sign a covenant to be alcohol, drug and violence free, and who are committed to using every opportunity to reintegrate into mainstream society. We help those who are among the neediest and the most overlooked.
