Next Move (formerly Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center) is a profound force in moving homeless families and individuals to self-sufficiency and self-reliance. Started as a Family Shelter program in 1972 to meet the basic needs of seven homeless families, the agency now serves an average of 500 people each day.  Our mission is to assist families with children and individuals toward self-reliance.

The Mankind Project International

We help men through any transition, men at all levels of success, men facing almost any challenge. Our flagship training, is described by many as the most powerful men’s training available: The New Warrior Training Adventure. MKP’s programs and groups are frequently recommended by licensed mental health professionals as a successful peer-support intervention or adjunct to traditional therapy.  (see recent articles in the New York Times, the Independent, NPR, or Broadly by Vice, or watch a 4 minute segment about the ManKind Project on ‘Follow This’ by Buzzfeed Media)

The ManKind Project supports a global network of over 1,000 peer-facilitated men’s groups serving close to 10,000 men each week. In an MKP men’s group, men mentor men through the passages of their lives.

The ManKind Project empowers men to missions of service, supporting men to make a difference in the lives of others – men, women, and children around the world.

Rebuilding Lives, Children

Moms 4 Housing

No one should be homeless when homes are sitting empty. Housing is a human right. The Moms for Housing are uniting mothers, neighbors and friends to reclaim housing for the Oakland community from the big banks and real estate speculators.

Moms for Housing is a collective of homeless and marginally housed mothers. Before we found each other, we felt alone in this struggle. But there are thousands of others like us here in Oakland and all across the Bay Area. We are coming together with the ultimate goal of reclaiming housing for the community from speculators and profiteers.

We are mothers, we are workers, we are human beings, and we deserve housing. Our children deserve housing. Housing is a human right.

Sanctuary Palm Springs was founded in 2014 to address the needs of transition-aged LGBTQ+ youth in the foster care system. A fully licensed Transitional Housing Placement Program-Non Minor Dependent (THPP-NMD) provider for youth ages 18-21 in extended foster care, we began welcoming residents in 2017. Our mission is to provide safe, comfortable, supervised housing for self-identified LGBTQ+ youth transitioning out of foster care to help them reach their goals of independence, self-sufficiency, housing permanence, and community connections.

Waves of Grace

with funds raised through grassroots support, we have sponsored 60 families to a week of rest and renewal at the beach
On average, we have a waiting list of 5-10 beach trip recipients waiting for their trip to be funded.
Each beach trip costs an average of $4,000. Waves of Grace covers the cost of everything from travel to medical equipment rental to meals and entertainment.
Our desire is for the trip to be FULLY expense-free. The more funds we raise, the more recipients we are able to gift a trip to. We hope you will join us in our effort!
