2024 Respite Center

What is the Carmichael Winter Respite Center?

From January 3rd – February 28th, we will provide 4 hours of respite 3 days per week, allowing guests to get out of the cold, use a restroom, eat a hot meal, rest, and receive the hospitality of volunteers and service providers. Additionally, our guests will be able to meet with the service provider, receive care from medical professionals, and have the chance to take free showers.

To serve those who may not be able to get to Winter Respite, we will conduct an outreach once per week, delivering meals, hygiene items, and survival gear to our homeless neighbors in Carmichael.

How do I Volunteer?

We are looking for individuals who have a compassionate heart for others and are willing to donate their time to help organize the respite center. We offer different duties and different amounts of involvement to meet the individual needs of our volunteers. Groups are preferred.

We are also looking for churches or similar facilities to donate space to house a week or longer of the shelter.

Spend the Day?

Carmichael HART Respite Center is a free program serving Carmichael’s homeless men and women.

Four years ago Carmichael HART operated a rotating winter sanctuary program. Unfortunately, due to COIVD-19, we are unable to accommodate overnight guests. In response, we are doing the best we can to provide services to our community’s homeless. The below numbers are stats from our first year of Winter Respite. We hope to grow our impact this year.
