Community Resources and Reports
Need Help Finding Housing?
Housing California works with the state legislature and community-based organizations to bring more housing resources to communities across California. We do not, however, provide housing. Though we are based in Sacramento, we do not have immediate assistance for housing services in our office. To find services in the Sacramento region, please contact 211 Sacramento online or simply dial 2-1-1.
Seniors and people with disabilities often need supportive living options. The Assisted Living Research Institute has created this guide to help those searching for assisted living homes overcome the two main barriers: choosing a home and figuring out how to pay for it. In this guide, you will learn about the different types of assisted living homes, how to choose the right home, how to pay for that home, and state-specific resources to assist you in your search.
This policy brief from Housing California and the Corporation for Supportive Housing provides an overview of the options and innovations available to communities through existing programs and new funding sources to address homelessness.
