Here's our 2020 Impact

Our Mission

Sacramento Self Help Housing is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that assists individuals and families who have insufficient resources for adequate housing. We help people who are homeless, in crisis, or have special needs to find stable, affordable housing. We have numerous programs for this purpose that includes permanent supportive housing, transitional housing, financial education, tenant-landlord helpline, housing counseling, and community development.

Background 

Sacramento Self-Help Housing (SSHH) began in 1990 as a housing counseling service out of Loaves & Fishes. At that time, the focus was to help homeless guests and others in the community navigate the rental housing market. Later that year, recognizing the need for a new model of housing its clients, SSHH began a shared housing program named "Friendship Housing". In 2000, we became recognized as a non-profit. SSHH continues to expand its housing and service oriented programs while trailblazing the Housing First model.
