Midtown HART - Programs & Initiatives

Our Respite Centers

We operate four Respite Centers in Midtown Sacramento. We are an all-volunteer organization, with over 40 volunteers working each week providing an indoor space for our unsheltered and homeless community to rest and recharge. We serve hot food, snacks, and takeaway lunches, beverages, and give clothing, blankets and sleeping bags, personal hygiene items, supplies and gear, books, access to bathrooms, bus passes for appointments, and outlets to charge phones and devices.  One of our Respite Centers has showers and haircuts on site every week. We partner with other community organizations and have an open-door policy to service providers and navigators to meet and deliver assistance to our guests. Healthcare, addiction and recovery programs, housing opportunities, obtaining new or lost ids, and help with Social Security and other applications are some of the services we provide directly or help via referrals.  


Midtown HART welcomes more than 300 guests to our respite centers each week, and over the course of a year we serve over 1,000 different individuals experiencing homelessness.  We are proud and humbled to know many of our visitors very well, while developing trust and relationships that creates possibilities to make lasting changes and differences in their lives. To that end, we are always seeking to further our collaboration and engagement with the homeless service programs and agencies, as well as local businesses and residents in and around Sacramento.  


Midtown HART needs both volunteer-power and donations to keep going!  If you would like to volunteer for the Respite Center, look for sign up opportunities at
