​​​​​​​​​​​​​​How To Get Help

People in need of sheltering or other services can get up-to-date information from 211 Sacramento.

Beginning 6/30/2023, families will no longer be able to access shelter through the Sacramento County Emergency Family Shelter Reservation List previously managed by the Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance (DHA). Families seeking shelter will now call 2-1-1, or dial 916-498-1000, to be assessed for shelter options and connected to other homeless services. All other family resources currently available through DHA, such as CalWORKs, CalFresh, and Medi-Cal, are accessible by contacting DHA at 1-800-560-0976​​; please visit DHA's webpage for more information about public assistance services.
