Our Mission

We are part of a network of HART organizations in Sacramento County working in cooperation with the nonprofit Sacramento Self-Help Housing. HART is a coalition of faith communities, non-profits, businesses, agencies, and residents that are committed to finding solutions to homelessness in our local communities. In suburban communities like Carmichael, resources are largely, if not completely, absent. Additionally, funding that is meant to address homelessness throughout Sacramento County goes to agencies that offer services predominantly to the urban core. Carmichael HART is a local response that addresses these realities by developing programs that will help homeless men, women, and youth.

 

Our Goals

  • Coordinate our 2017-2018 winter shelter program
  • Advance our initiatives in advocacy, youth homelessness, and affordable housing
  • Start a transitional housing program
  • Advocate for a Navigator to assist the homeless in Carmichael
  • Connect the homeless to the resources they need
