Access to Services

  • CDE COVID Guidance and Resources for Homeless Youth
  • Food Texting Service
    • Text ‘Food’ to 877-877 to find sites near you that are serving free emergency meals to kids and teens 18 years old and under during the pandemic and throughout the summertime.
      • Text ‘Comida’ to 877-877 to find sites in Spanish
    • How it works: Users text ‘FOOD’ or ‘Comida’ to 877-877 and receive a text back prompting them to enter a street address, city and state and/or zip code for their desired location. While the service is able to return results for inputs that include only city and state and/or zip code, including a full street address will return results that are more accurate. The service then provides information about nearby meal sites, or information about how to access other food resources if no sites are operating in the vicinity.
  • School Meal Pick-up Information
  • Internet Services

Sacramento County Resources

  • This EHCY Master Resource List is intended to be a tool for homeless liaisons, all school staff, families who have access, and any provider of services to quickly access resources. This tool allows the user to filter by each column. For example, you can filter “category” by food, shelter, mental health, etc. Once filtered, a general list will be revealed. A notes section is on the far right and has specific details to the current COVID-19 details. This is a live document and if another user just closed the document after filtering, you will need to filter or remove a filter to reveal the entire list.
    There are additional local resources in areas within Sacramento; this list is a general list encompassing the greater Sacramento area.
