Who is Experiencing Homelessness in Elk Grove?

Many local residents have lost their job, their home, have become financially strained or have unstable family connections. They find themselves in a downward spiral that seems impossible to get out of without our help.

We are a 501c(3) non-profit organization;
100% of donations go directly toward providing services.
Tax ID# 46-4162394


Your donations will help fund our new transitional house for women and children

This beautiful 7 bedroom house will be home to 3 families plus a house monitor. The unique configuration of this house is perfectly setup for each family to have 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Our goal is to help these families get out of homelessness and back on their feet, but we need your help. It will cost $30,000 a year to operate this house. Please help us meet this goal by contributing today.

There are people living “on the street”, “living in a car” and “couch surfing” without a permanent place they call home.  Families with children are losing jobs and homes. They are the most rapidly growing population of the homeless in Elk Grove.

Elk Grove WINter Sanctuary


As we see the temperatures drop we are reminded why we started this program.  

EG WINS is a joint effort with local churches to offer temporary, emergency shelter for homeless people in Elk Grove.  Each host church will provide up to 25 men, women, and families with a warm, dry place to sleep, a hot meal, and friendly companionship.

We would be interested in hearing from you or your church on how you might become involved.

Looking for some space to call our own. We proudly put every dollar we raise back into our program, but we are finding it necessary to have a office/warehouse for us to meet and store some items for the program. We do not want to expend the donation money on this, so we are hoping that someone would be generous enough to offer us a place to use. Please ask around and help us with our need. ...
