About

The Getting To Zero campaign’s goal is to implement a region-wide systemic approach that will end chronic homelessness in Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties by aligning public, private and philanthropic programs and resources in support of Housing First, a no-or-low barrier response to homelessness.

By providing the chronically homeless with Housing First, and then quickly offering the support services they need to achieve and maintain stability, this model builds a system to move homeless individuals from a first contact to stable housing placement. Housing First is not only a compassionate response to homelessness, it’s a proven strategy with measurable outcomes and meaningful results that will improve the health of our communities and save money for local government and local business.

Sutter Health Valley Area is leading an effort to align public, private and philanthropic resources to support Housing First and low-or-no barrier programs in Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties. Sutter will match up to $10 million in contributions to the Getting To Zero campaign and has committed to raising $20 million over three years to support this regional effort. This audacious challenge is a continuation of Sutter’s long history of making innovative investments in the health of communities it serves.
