Getting To Zero Grants to Date

There are more than 4,500 men, women and children who are homeless in the greater Sacramento region today, and that number continues to grow. As part of its longstanding commitment to improving the health and well-being of the communities it serves, Sutter Health has launched the Getting to Zero campaign with a goal to effectively end homelessness in Sacramento, Placer and Yolo Counties.

Getting to Zero seeks to realign public, private and philanthropic resources and response in support of low- or n0-barrier approaches to addressing homelessness. Together with local government and business partners, Sutter Health is committed to helping raise $20 million to support this effort and will match up to $10 million in contributions to the Getting to Zero campaign. As of July 2017, Sutter Health has partnered with four local jurisdictions –  making almost $2 million in 2017.

City of Roseville: $250,000

The City of Roseville received $250,000 in matching funds from Sutter Health to support its Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing Program. Read the announcement here and learn more about the outcomes here.

City of Davis: $233,000

Sutter Health awarded the City of Davis with a $233,000 matching grant to increase permanent supportive housing for its chronically homeless population. The funds will be used to support Davis Pathways, which will serve an estimated 45 individuals over three years. While elements of Davis Pathways have been in place for several months, the matching grant from Sutter Health provides the funding needed to incorporate job training, bridge rental assistance, and supportive services. Read the announcement here and learn more about the outcomes here.

Placer County: $1,000,000

Placer County received a $1 million matching grant from Sutter Health to buy housing and rental subsidies for up to 20 homeless people a year. The donation is going to the county Whole Person Care pilot program and involves purchasing housing units for participants to use. The Whole Person Care Program is a major, five-year pilot powered by $10 million in federal funding, which the county will match by reassigning funds. Read the announcement here and learn more about the outcomes here.

City of Sacramento: $433,000

Sutter Health gave a $433,000 matching grant to the City of Sacramento to expand services at the Salvation Army’s Center of Hope Emergency Shelter. The funding will support services for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Read the announcement here and learn more about the outcomes here.
