What Can I Do?

Important COVID-19 Information:

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has several COVID-related resources available to support people experiencing homelessness and information for people who want to help unsheltered populations.


We recommend direct donations to those organizations working on behalf of the City to connect with those experiencing homelessness. Donate time or money to any of our partner organizations such as:

Should you wish to distribute food or other items, please read the City of Sacramento’s permitting requirements and CA Health and Safety Code health permit requirements for the public distribution of food. 

For more opportunities to lend a helping hand, visit Hands on Superior NorCal.


If there are signs of unoccupied homeless encampments in and around your neighborhood, within the Sacramento City limits, report them to the City’s 311 Service Center.

If you witness criminal activity perpetrated by someone experiencing homelessness or where a person experiencing homelessness is a victim, call 911 immediately.
