2017 Investment Outcomes

Working with our partners, we’ve successfully housed over 1,000 individuals with nearly 90 percent of them receiving permanent housing.


When we work together, we can end chronic homelessness.

Getting to Zero is a communitywide, collaborative campaign to effectively end homelessness in Sacramento, Placer and Yolo counties in the next three years. The goal of the campaign is to reach Functional Zero – when the number of individuals experiencing a housing crisis is equal to or fewer than the number of permanent housing units available to them.

What is the cost of homelessness?


Monthly cost to provide health care, law enforcement, and other homeless services in the current model.


Monthly cost to the community once permanent supportive housing and other services have been provided.

The Getting to Zero campaign represents the beginning of a long overdue public-private partnership to solve homelessness in our region. I am grateful to Sutter Health and all the private sector partners for stepping up to help solve a solvable problem. It begins with will and commitment.

It’s important for us to collaborate across county lines to more effectively collect data and share information so we can make more informed policy decisions in our communities and across the region.
