Winter Shelter
The Folsom Winter Shelter is a joint effort with local churches to offer temporary, emergency shelter for homeless people in Folsom, similar to what other HART organizations are doing in other Sacramento county cities. Each host church will provide up to 20 men, women, and families with a warm, dry place to sleep, a hot meal, and friendly companionship. Please note that by Folsom statute, we are limited to housing 20 people.

We are starting to get some churches lined up for 2017/2018, and we are now starting to put together our needs; volunteers and supplies. Listed below is a summary of available positions.
