HART of Folsom - Programs & Initiatives
Winter Sanctuary Revolving Shelter
Folsom participates in the HART Winter Sanctuary 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. Volunteer here.
Folsom has one transitional house and two trailers to offer immediate respite off of the street for their clients. Click here for more information. They have also had success in moving clients into permanent affordable housing through partnerships with the city of Folsom.
An outstanding feature of HART of Folsom is their strong and active Mentoring Program. Volunteers participate in a Mentoring Program with both their Winter Sanctuary and Transitional Housing clients. Mentors provide support to clients and help them get connected and stay connected to resources and programs.
