Sacramento Steps Forward
Launched in 2009 as a policy initiative to reshape the fight against homelessness in Sacramento, SSF was incorporated in February of 2011 as a 501(c)(3), California nonprofit corporation with the mission to ensure all people experiencing homelessness can obtain housing, economic stability and an enhanced quality of life.
Sacramento Steps Forward inherited the roles, responsibilities, and funding that was previously part of County government. SSF distributes grant funding for over 20 effective and solution-based programs to community based non-profits while collaborating for community support of education and employment services.
Sacramento Steps Forward serves as The Continuum of Care Board for Sacramento County. The board is responsible for advising the SSF Board of Directors and the community on policy around the issue of homelessness. The goal of this Board is to ensure SSF a broad representation of constituents in the community, allowing our organization to establish a more efficient method of community planning and evaluation, which is key in our mission to end homelessness.
