Elk Grove HART was formed in 2010 to provide local services to the growing number of homeless in Elk Grove. Our goal is to assist those experiencing homelessness in Elk Grove toward self-sufficiency and greater independence.
What We Do
- HELP to meet basic needs
- ENCOURAGE movement out of homelessness
- CONNECT to resources
- MENTOR individuals
- TEACH AND ASSIST with budgeting
- AID in attaining gainful employment
In cooperation with the City of Elk Grove and Sacramento Self-Help Housing, we obtained a house in the old town area. This 5 bedroom, 3 bath house provides a stable environment to mentor the clients as they become solid productive members of society.
This spacious 7 bedroom house is home to 3 families plus a house monitor. The unique configuration of this house is perfectly setup for each family to have 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Our goal is to help these families get out of homelessness and back on their feet, but we need your continued support.
Elk Grove WINter Sanctuary (EG WINS)
EG WINS is a joint effort with local churches to offer temporary, emergency shelter for homeless people in Elk Grove. Each host church will provide up to 25 men, women, and families with a warm, dry place to sleep, a hot meal, and friendly companionship.
Assisting Homeless Children
There are over 450 homeless children within the Elk Grove Unified School District. HART works with the School District to assist them. The Elk Grove Food Bank serves approximately 2,700 people per month. Of those, the Food Bank provides food and services to about 100 homeless.
