Sacramento low income housing.

Sacramento individuals and families have access to several low income housing units as well as shelters. People who stay at these centers will also be able to access additional services, including case management and support in finding longer term, permanent homes or apartments to live in.

Many of the transitional housing units and shelters are run by non-profit organizations. While the locations try to meet the extensive need for affordable housing in Sacramento, resources are limited and only some people may qualify.

Each and every program will have restrictions in place and/or conditions that need to be met by applicants. For example, some housing resources are limited to those who were recently evicted, the homeless, victims of domestic violence, or maybe single parents or children. Many locations have case managers that will also help clients explore resources such as security deposit or long term rent assistance programs. It is recommended to call a program in order to get more information on their services.
