Providing hope -
not just housing

See how our programs work to prevent and eliminate homelessness.

  Homelessness in Sacramento is at a state of emergency. We have a moral obligation to solve it.  

No other organization has the capacity to address the homelessness epidemic like The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army, which has operated in Sacramento for over 135 years, offers viable and verifiable solutions to the crisis. Just last year, the nonprofit served over 32,000 people here with a simple mission: meeting human needs in the name of Jesus without discrimination. That kind of impact and staying power show one thing; Salvation Army programs work.

According to the official count from Sacramento Steps Forward, the number of homeless people in Sacramento County rose 19% in 2019. That makes a total of almost 6,000 people - the highest number ever recorded. That's 36 homeless people for every 10,000 residents. That's thousands of people with nowhere to sleep tonight.

While the city and other organizations are doing what they can to find solutions, The Salvation Army is doing its part through time-tested methods.


So how do we make a meaningful impact?

At The Salvation Army, we have programs designed to transforms lives, remove the barriers to stable living, and help put people on a path to self-sufficiency, out of the cycle of poverty.

A Man in Recovery Finds His Way

“After finishing my stay at the Stockton Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Program, I wasn’t sure where I was headed. I was praying for something to come along that would give me a future with independence so I would no longer feel like a burden upon others. Then I found out about the opportunity to attend this construction program and felt it was the pathway to said ambitions. It turned out to be an invaluable resource and I have since embarked on a journey towards a lucrative career and future in the construction field as an electrician. I want to thank The Salvation Army for all that they do. Last and most important, thank you God for not giving up on me. Put your trust in God, and He will never disappoint. Good luck future graduates, and never give up!”

- Ethan, graduate of The Salvation Army Construction Training Program
