Welcome to the Cathedral Square Homeless Program
Since November of 2005, the Cathedral
Square Homeless Program has provided assistance
to 113 homeless
individuals who were living on the streets of downtown Sacramento. We
are pleased to report that over 50% of our clients leave our
program with long term, affordable housing. Of the
individuals we have served, 33 have left our program after
securing employment and 36 have left our program with some form of
government assistance. We helped these individuals
secure long-term, affordable housing that they can afford
for the long-term.

homeless individuals that come to us are eligible for

receiving disability checks because they do not have an address. We help individuals apply
for and receive
assistance they are eligible for.
There are homeless individuals living on the streets that
need our help. Please be as generous as you can and
donate to the program.
