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 launched the Getting to Zero campaign in 2016 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 responses in support of low- or no-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 January 2019, Sutter Health has partnered with four local jurisdictions and invested over $5 million towards innovative housing solutions.
City of Roseville: $500,000
