Next Move is a powerful force in moving homeless individuals and adults with children to higher levels of self-sufficiency and self-reliance. Started in 1972, housing just seven homeless families, we now serve an average of 500 participants each day.

Did you know that almost all shelters require single fathers with daughters to be split up at night? The same goes for single mothers with sons. Next Move is one of only two shelters in Sacramento county that has a primary focus on keeping families together in our Family Shelter, accepting two-parent families, single fathers, and malesĀ over the age of 14. We are the only shelter that offers private family rooms.
