Sacramento is typical of what we see happening across America. In 2017 Sacramento saw a dramatic increase in the number of homeless people, rising from 2,822 in 2015 to 3,665 in 2017, of which 56 percent are unsheltered. That’s 2,000 people in Sacramento County, through no fault of their own, forced to live outside.

SOLUTION IGNORED
Sacramento needs to expand the number of emergency shelter beds, provide more funds to funds for mental health and addiction services and most importantly bring @CirclesUSA to Sacramento. CUSA is a nonprofit that supports families as they lift themselves out of poverty.
