Tenants in a housing crisis or dispute need a reliable resource for information about their rights and obligations as renters. SSHH provides a helpline for tenants that provides education and dispute resolution. This helps to keep families in their homes.
SSHH recognizes that housing instability can be a significant barrier to employment. Since 2014, SSHH has provided housing counseling to SETA clients while receiving employment and training services. This helps lower-income families become self-sufficient through training and employment. We enrolled 164 individuals or families in 2015, helping them achieve their long-term success.
Chronically homeless and disabled people need extra support. To meet their needs we developed a housing program for the most vulnerable people coming from the streets and emergency shelters. We house them in 28 single-family residences (totaling 140 beds) scattered throughout Sacramento County. Sacramento Steps Forward helps us locate the most vulnerable men and women on the streets.
2017 was another great year for Sacramento Self-Help Housing. Check out our 2017 annual report, "The Impact of Hope," below.
