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


According to a recent study published in June 2019 by Sacramento Steps Forward, 5,570 people are currently experiencing homelessness in Sacramento. Of those, 3,900, or 70%, of them are unsheltered and living out in the elements along rivers and underneath freeway overpasses. Living outside means no toilet, no shower, no place to do laundry, and no privacy, among other things that many of us take for granted. While we wish we could help all of them, we must direct our limited resources to the most marginalized, the most vulnerable, the unsheltered. To take it one step further, we seek out the unsheltered who are not able or not likely to travel to the few centralized locations in Sacramento that offer homeless support because we want to make sure that these people also get the supplies  and services they need.  It truly takes a network of caring hearts to make an important and meaningful difference in these people's lives. Join us in helping our fellow humans, our neighbors, in crisis. Do Better with Humanitarian Action Network.

Human shirt, Sacramento, Humanitarian Action Network

HAN launched its first annual HUMAN t-shirt project in June 2019. The project entailed distributing 100 HUMAN shirts to people who are experiencing homelessness throughout Sacramento, California. The purpose of this project was to remind people with homes that people without homes are still human beings who still have the same basic human needs as everyone else. Losing one's home does not change the fact that people still need shelter, food, water, a place to go to the bathroom, dignity, and love. A special thank you to S+B James Construction for their generous contribution toward this project.
