Carmichael HART - Programs & Initiatives
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.
