"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." Maya Angelou
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 start 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.

We support people in crisis in our community. They are without access to shelter, and most commonly are:
