Who is Experiencing Homelessness in Elk Grove?

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

Our newest transition home is almost ready for families

Thank you for your support, but remember we still need your assistance

This beautiful 7 bedroom house will be home for up 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 desire 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, so your continued support would be greatly appreciated.

One of our goals is to help these families become self-sufficient and establish themselves back into being productive in society. The greatest need is for them to find gainful employment and begin building stable lives. If you have employment opportunities or job training that may help please contact us.


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.

Almost time for the 3rd Annual Elk Grove Winter Sanctuary Program - EG WINS! This is an important part of Elk Grove HART, providing emergency shelter for up to 20 guests nightly. This year’s EG WINS will begin December 13, 2015 for a 12 week run through March 5, 2016.

Host churches provide a warm and dry place to sleep, a hot meal and most importantly, welcoming friendship for our guests. This includes Elk Grove United Methodist, First Baptist, St. Joseph’s, Sun Grove, LifePointe Christian, River City, Living Water, Grace Community and Harvest churches all agreeing to return as host churches. In the meantime, we are working with several other churches expressing interest in becoming involved for the first time this year.

Volunteers, both returning and new, are needed to make the program a success. In mid-October, we will begin volunteer sign-up using SignUpGenius.com, an on-line program to help us effectively manage and communicate with 100+ volunteers.

Say tuned for more information and tell your friends that this is the chance for them to also become involved in a way that can have great impact in the lives of our neighbors in need.
Thanks for spreading God’s love in our community!
