In addition to crisis and emergency shelter services, Next Move operates multiple housing programs that provide individuals with wrap-around services to assist them on their path to stable permanent housing and economic well-being.

Transitional housing within the Next Move continuum of housing is a form of housing support that enables families and individuals to quickly transition into stable housing and employment. Long term housing is more robust. These programs provide services to support individuals and families who need ongoing assistance to maintain housing stability and prepare to enter the job market, school, and other community activities.

Next Move’s continuum of housing programs serves a broad range of needs. Across roughly 200 units of housing in locations throughout Sacramento County, Next Move – along with its partners – provides specialized case management, mental health, youth development, and employment services to families, individuals with disabilities, veterans, senior citizens, former foster youth, and others.

Access to Next Move’s continuum of housing and service programs is available through referral only. Individuals and families can obtain support, access services, and find more information by doing the following:

  1. Visit or call Next Move’s sister nonprofit, 211 Sacramento at the  2-1-1 Sacramento web site or call 2-1-1 to learn about available resources and services.
  2. Register for family shelter services on the Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance web site or at a bureau location in Sacramento County.
  3. Visit Francis House Center. Francis House is a program of Next Move and the front door to critical services that can help families and individuals experiencing homeless begin their journey from crisis to stability.
