Addressing Homelessness

Sacramento homeless line up at neighborhood pool

The City of Sacramento is committed to being a city where all are welcome, where all are supported and where all have opportunities to thrive. Those experiencing homelessness in our city are a visible, and sometimes invisible, reminder of the work we must do to be a world class city. As the largest city in Sacramento County and the region, the City is committed to working in partnership with other jurisdictions in the region to prevent and end homelessness throughout Sacramento.
