How can I help the homeless in Sacramento?


Between the homeless population and the number of people struggling with limited to no income and lack of resources, choosing to give back is a great way to make a difference in the lives of many people. You can donate your time to helping others, and putting smiles on their faces. With the added bonus that it leaves you with feelings of genuine happiness and gratitude for the experience!

Find Charitable Organizations

While there are many ways to give back, one of the first things you can do is find out about different charitable organizations in and around the Sacramento area. One of the best ways to find this information is to perform a quick online search using the words, “Charitable Organizations Near Me” or "List of Nonprofit Organizations in Sacramento."

After you’ve typed these words into Google, you can see a list of organizations in your area and learn more about them, ultimately deciding which ones you’d like to contribute to for the sake of others in need. We know it’s not always easy to know which organizations are reputable and which ones are not, so it’s important to do your research before you commit to giving back your time or resources.

Start Fundraisers

While looking for different charitable organizations, you may stumble across organizations for children with cancer, low-income families, those struggling with drug addiction, and people diagnosed with various conditions. When you do find one or more organizations that touch your heart and truly speak to you, consider starting a fundraiser to help raise funds that you can give back to the organization! For example, you can have a bake sale or a raffle to bring in some extra cash to donate. Even small amounts can make a difference. In addition to fundraising, you can host events to help raise awareness for these organizations. Get involved by contacting the organizations and asking them what you can do to contribute and assist those in need.

Donate Your Time

While donating money is a huge help for many organizations looking to make a difference in the lives of different people, donating your time is equally important. If you have some spare time outside of your work life and personal life, consider spending time volunteering for some of these organizations. For example, you could volunteer at the homeless shelter, serving food, handing out jackets, and lending an ear to the less fortunate. When you volunteer to work with the less fortunate, it can keep you humble while helping you become a more passionate, kind, and giving person in the long run. Serving together as a family is also a beautiful value to instill in your kids.
