Winter Respite Center
What is the Carmichael Winter Respite Center?
From January 3rd – February 28th, Carmichael HART will provide 4 hours of respite 3 days per week, allowing guests to get out of the cold, use a restroom, eat a hot meal, rest, and receive the hospitality of volunteers and service providers. Additionally, their guests will be able to meet with the Homeless Outreach Navigator, receive care from nursing students from Chamberlain University College of Nursing, and have the chance to take free showers.
In order to serve those who may not be able to get to Winter Respite, Carmichael HART will conduct an outreach once per week, delivering meals, hygiene items, and survival gear to our homeless neighbors in Carmichael.

How do I Volunteer?
We are looking for individuals who have a compassionate heart for others and are willing to donate their time to help organize the respite center. We offer different duties and different amounts of involvement to meet the individual needs of our volunteers. Groups are preferred.
We are also looking for churches or similar facilities to donate space to house a week or longer of the shelter.
Contact us to find out more.
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 has 2 transitional homes: Charlotte's House for adult women and most recently, the Robertson House for adult men. They will be able to house 8 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.
Outreach and Shower Program
Our street outreach feeding program will look to resources, supplies, and meals to our unhoused community members 52 weeks per year. Our goal is to make sure no one on the street in our community goes to bed hungry. Food insecurity is an issue that can be fixed with the right amount of hard work, resources, and coordination. We believe we’re the perfect organization for the job. Click here to sign up to volunteer.
Every Saturday we are partnering with Carmichael Presbyterian Church to provide showers to our homeless neighbors. Unhoused community members can take a free shower and get connected to mainline resources such as vaccinations, food stamps, housing referrals, and most importantly, community.
