The majority of us look forward to the changing seasons of the year- fall: the crisp air, brightly colored leaves, curling up with something hot by the fire and, on the opposing spectrum we enjoy the spring and contrasting summer. But to the homeless...in most cases the coming cold weather and blazing hot summers are dreadful. For our neighbors without four walls the adverse seasons help contribute to spikes in alcoholism, drug abuse and depression.
We want to understand the world that our invisible neighbors live in. To gain insight into thier needs from emergency survival on the streets to ultimately working with the community in finding them easily accessible and vital services. With the ulitmate goal of providing then the tools that that promote a healthy transition into stable housing.
"Whether you think you can or cannot -- you are right."

We are happy to report that "Project Cover Your Neighbor Foundation" is a government-certified 501c3 Non-Profit
Hundreds of men, women and children struggle to survive on Sacramento's streets. More people in our community are facing desperate situations than ever before. As public support services continue to dwindle and disappear giving these hurting men and women an opportunity for hope, could be the just whats needed to change their future.
Thank you for your generosity.
There are many ways we can help the homeless ~ I would like to see more creative solutions such as free mobile showers, laundry options, mobile social service command centers, more shelters with on-site classrooms for GED studies, life skills (including food prep, basic first aid, money management), and job re-training. Are you interested in sponsoring and partnering with us in one of more of these activities?

You have to follow your heart when deciding to give cash. Cash gifts are often used to buy drugs and alcohol. Instead, make your donations to a well-known, reputable organization in your community. Many shelters and soup kitchens also welcome contributions of food, clothing and other supplies. If you want a little more comfort when you giving money there are many dining establishments such as McDonald's, Burger King, Subway, Panera, Pizza Hut, and Dunkin Donuts, among others, all sell gift cards, and some are available for just $1. Another option is to purchase gift cards from a supermarket. Some grocery stores offer gift cards for as little as $5.Read more
