March Newsletter

Dear Friend & Supporter:

Here on North C Street, we welcome the promise of spring that March brings. This cold, wet winter has hit our homeless guests hard; the lucky ones have a homeless program or motel room to shelter them from the weather. Many others, by Sacramento County's reckoning well over a thousand others, are actually living outside. The federal government has an official designation to describe this disgraceful situation: sleeping in "a place not meant for human habitation."

Our guests seek shelter wherever they can. In Sacramento, people live in or spend the night on:

  • Church Steps
  • In Storage Units
  • Concrete Sewer Pipes
  • Dumpsters
  • Tents
  • Tarps
  • Under Parked Trucks
  • Tunnels under Downtown and Old Sacramento
  • On Rooftops of Retail and Commercial Buildings
  • Porta-Potties
  • Abandoned Buildings
  • Bushes
  • Parking Garages
  • Cars, Vans, and Trucks, Operable and Inoperable
  • Vacant Lots
  • Along the Rivers
  • Boats
  • All-Night Copy Shops
  • All-Night Coffee Shops
  • Rented U-Haul Vans
  • Under Freeways and Bridges
  • Alleys
  • Doorways
  • Shipping Crates
  • Benches
  • Under Building Overhangs
  • Bus Stations
  • Warehouses
  • Hospital Waiting Rooms
  • Construction Sites
  • Cardboard Boxes

Imagine how incredibly difficult daily life becomes when you have nowhere of your own to lay down your head. If you dare to stay outside for more than one night in the same place, you are even breaking the law and can be arrested!

Please help us welcome those who have no home, help us give them a place to eat, to shower, to change into clean clothes, to rest, to receive mail, to be greeted cheerfully by name. Your financial support is greatly needed so that Loaves & Fishes may continue to provide this much-needed refuge from the streets.

We will also speak up for and with our guests until there is SafeGround in Sacramento, an outdoor campus where homeless men and women can live legally in a safe, sanitary, and empowering community.

Love & Peace,

Loaves & Fishes
