Next Move by the Numbers (annual averages):
650 children, single women and families are served throughout our programs
56 percent of the children we serve are under the age of six
230 adults served
125 single women served
50 percent of our families found permanent housing
33 days is the average length of stay at Next Move, which is lower than any other comparable shelter in Sacramento
500 individuals and adults with children are turned away from the shelter every month. So, what’s our next move, you ask?
Next Move’s objective is to help get more individuals and families with children off the street, back to work, and back home. With your help we will be able to:
- Help the growing number families who are turned away from our shelter each month due to lack of vacancy
- Serve more individuals
- Increase shelter classroom size so more children can learn, do their homework and stay on track in school
- Serve more families
- Expand our employment services, which will allow us to put more people back to work
- Create an outdoor play area that kids of all ages will be able to take advantage of during this difficult period of temporary homelessness
