This simple but powerful quote by Maya Angelou was the catalyst that led to the formation of Humanitarian Action Network in 2018.
According to the latest study published in June 2019 by Sacramento Steps Forward, 5,570 people are currently experiencing homelessness in Sacramento. Of those, 3,900, or 70%, are living outside in the elements, along rivers and underneath freeway overpasses. While we wish we could help everyone, Humanitarian Action Network directs its limited resources to the most marginalized, the most vulnerable, the unsheltered.
But Humanitarian Action Network does more than provide immediate and direct support to people in crisis in the community. We are simultaneously driven to change hearts and minds about homelessness, and we have several projects, activities and events in place to foster this important paradigm shift. We believe that raising awareness about homelessness and fostering empathy and humanity are powerful tools we can use to change the trajectory of how our cities, states, and nation will address homelessness moving forward. Homelessness does not have to exist.
It takes a network of caring hearts to make an important and meaningful difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness. Please join us in helping our fellow humans, our neighbors, in crisis. Do Better with Humanitarian Action Network.

Launched August 2020, as part of our latest homelessness awareness initiative: A new series of HAN shirts made of moisture-wicking material, intended to be worn while exercising. The shirts are not for sale but are a free gift with a minimum $50 donation. All proceeds will go toward purchasing supplies for our 6th Annual Winter Homeless Care Package Project. We are currently taking pre-orders and expect to begin shipping the shirts mid-September. Shirts are unisex and sizes range from XS – 3X. Only 100 shirts are being made so sizes are limited. To get yours, donations can be made by check or online. Notate your size and confirm your shipping address with your check.
