Winter Sanctuary Revolving Shelter
Carmichael participates in the HART Winter Shelter program. Every year individuals are identified through their local housing navigator and HART members to participate in a 9-12 week revolving winter shelter. Each participating church opens their doors for one week to house people experiencing homelessness in their community. The HART Winter Shelter program harnesses the power of 700-800 volunteers, funded solely through private donations and year-round fundraising, to put on a full-service revolving shelter, complete with access to resources and services.

Youth Initiative Committee
Carmichael works in collaboration with Citrus Heights and the San Juan School District to put on an annual resource fair for unstably housed students and their families, called Student Connect. Carmichael also has created a Student Buddy mentorship program to help students who are unstably housed work through problems and plan for their educational and vocational future.
Carmichael HART’s Transitional Housing Program is beginning with 1 house on Walnut Avenue. They will be able to house 4 people who are currently experiencing homelessness in Carmichael. The program will provide more than shelter and food. Each resident will be assigned a case manager who will help them navigate resources and explore next steps, such as employment and permanent housing. They will also be assigned a mentor who will meet with them weekly to work on life skills and provide support and guidance.
