Sacramento Steps Forward is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to ending homelessness in our region through collaboration, innovation, and connecting people to services. Walking side-by-side with our partners, we seek to provide people experiencing homelessness with the support and services they need to find stability and long term housing.
The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed by the US Housing and Urban Development to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness. Sacramento Steps Forward is the lead agency for the CoC in Sacramento and collaborates with a 25 member stakeholder Advisory Board
As one of the few nonprofit organizations in the country responsible for managing US Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds for homelessness granted under the The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act, we are uniquely positioned to collaborate with our partners to develop innovative regional solutions that connect people to the services they need.
Housing first focuses on quickly moving people experiencing homelessness into independent and permanent housing and then providing additional supports and services as needed.
Coordinated entry relies on common assessment, prioritization based on vulnerability, and matching individuals with the appropriate housing and services.
The data generated through the Homeless Management Information System and Coordinated Entry provides Sacramento Steps Forward with critical insights into the needs of individuals experiencing homelessness in Sacramento, program cost-effectiveness, system- and program-level efficiency, and system gaps.
