Roseville Home Start successfully transitions homeless families with children into affordable, sustainable, permanent housing and self-reliance through a system of housing and support services that is comprehensive, flexible, accessible and accountable. Our Mission:to provide hope to homeless families, by assisting them in their move to self-sufficiency. We provide a safe, stable, drug-free, violence-free environment for children to live with their families. Major components of the program include transitional housing, case management, budgeting, life skills training, therapy and permanent housing placement. Families reside at Home Start for one year, then continue under Home Start’s case management for an additional year upon successfully moving into their own permanent housing. Home Start provides shelter and comprehensive services to 150-200 clients per year.
The Major Goals of Home Start
1- To raise the standard of living for homeless families with children, from poverty to self-sufficiency
2- To determine the mix of services necessary to assist residents in moving from homelessness to self-sufficiency
3- To promote a comprehensive system of care, targeting specific sub-populations, including, but not limited to, victims of domestic abuse, violence, severe and persistent mental illness, alcohol and drug dependence.
4- To transition families who have no housing, to permanent housing, where they will reside for at least 24 months.
5- To develop innovative ways of assisting homeless persons in the transition from homelessness, and to enable them to live as independently as possible.
6- To prevent the recurring cycle of homelessness
Home Start is the only non-profit Transitional Housing Program and Shelter serving homeless children and their families in Placer County. These families are chronically homeless, substance abusers, mentally ill, victims of domestic violence, teen parents, disabled, and general population. We do not extend services to single adults.
