Day Respite Center
The Day Respite Center currently operates Tuesday through Friday , 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. It provides a space for community, health checks, showers, warm meals, laundry and connection to basic necessities. We operate as a "Navigation Center" and offer case management, entry to county services and support for longer term needs.
Emergency Warming Center
The Emergency Warming Center is open on only the most severe weather nights, November - April. The center provides our guests a warm, dry, safe place to stay overnight.
Weather triggers (15 degrees or less, a foot or more of snow overnight and other severe weather conditions) will activate the EWC. A weekly schedule will be posted on Wednesdays. To find out if the EWC is open, you may call the program phone: 530-386-7954, check out our Facebook page or email and request to be added to the email list for open notifications.
** Nevada County is working to open an alternative EWC with an estimated start date of 3rd week of December. Link to December 1st 2023 article: Moonshine Ink Article
Our Homeless Outreach coordinator, partners with other staff to execute Street Outreach services. Utilizing a team approach, they meet neighbors where they are, develop relationships, provide basic necessities and encourage individuals to engage in other available programs.
Case Management & Housing Support
We have two case managers who focus on helping neighbors collect their needed documentation and connecting them to services and benefits. Our goal is to support our longer term homeless neighbors with the ability to qualify for low-income apartments, while helping them increase their income sources and apply for permanent housing vouchers. The entire team works to support as many people as possible with steps needed to get newly homeless neighbors back into housing quickly. We provide direct service coordination to help newly housed neighbors adjust to being housed and remain housed.
