What is interim housing?
By embracing the housing first model, SSHH’s Interim Housing Department helps those that are recently chronically homeless transition to a life of sustainable, permanent, and safe housing through holistic and intensive case management services.
SSHH’s Interim Housing Department embraces the philosophy that anyone, regardless of physical, financial, or mental limitation CAN achieve permanent housing with a healthy environment and the right type of supportive services.
The SSHH Interim Housing Department operates 32 houses across Sacramento. Recently, they’ve paired with Sacramento County to facilitate a 75 bed scattered site emergency shelter for those living on the banks of the America River. Below is a video outlining the success of that partnership.
Currently, our Interim housing department provides shelter and case management services to 144 individuals, including 5 families. Over the course of 2018, they’ve had a 96% success rate of transitioning clients into permanent housing, at an innovational low cost, as compared to conventional alternatives like motels, overnight shelters, and jail cells.
