The mission of Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center (SAEHC) is to provide assistance to families with children and individuals toward self reliance
Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center (SAEHC) continues to be a profound force in moving homeless families and individuals to higher levels of self-sufficiency and self-reliance. Started as a Family Shelter program in 1972 meeting the basic needs of seven homeless families, the agency now serves an average of 500 program participants each day in a variety of programs.
Just as the agency has grown, so too has the scope of its goals and services. Initially, the provision of shelter alone helped people out of homelessness and therefore constituted the agency's mission.
However, goals have now changed to meet the changing needs of program participants. In its shelters, transitional housing, and community services programs, agency goals include the provision of individualized case plans, self-sufficiency workshops and groups such as living skills, parenting, budgeting, housing, health and mental health care, housing relocation assistance, and community support services.
SAEHC has not only developed a rich history and incorporated other service goals into its overall mission; it has managed its programs in such a way that they make visible and measurable change in people's lives.Board of Directors
