HART was started as a way to engage the local community and bring much needed services to the suburban areas of Sacramento County. We are collaboration between community members, faith-based organizations, and local nonprofits who are striving to end homelessness. Each HART group creates its own mission dedicated to the needs of the local community. Sacramento Self Help Housing supports in helping achieve their goals.
Elk Grove HART was the first HART founded in 2010. Since then, HART has expanded to six more communities: Citrus Heights, Rancho Cordova, Carmichael, Folsom, North Sacramento, and Arden Arcade. HART groups are also forming in South Sacramento and Midtown. HART makes it possible to serve people experiencing homelessness where they are and provide services for them in the communities in which they reside.
