Waking the Village operates three housing programs. All typically have a wait list so this is the place to begin! We will call back with resources and advice on how to best navigate Sacramento's crazy housing scene.

Our housing programs:

**IMPORTANT! Eligibility requirements have changed as of 1/1/2018! See below**

Tubman House: Tubman House serves young parents, pregnant women or single young adults experiencing homelessness that are survivors of crime. If you are between 18 and 24, homeless, and pregnant or parenting, you are eligible for housing with Tubman. If you enter before your 22nd birthday, you can stay up to two years. Tubman House is a transitional program and residents share a house with a live in House Director and work daily with coaches to reach their goals.

Audre's Emporium of New Tomorrows: Audre's serves young adults from the LGBTQ community between the ages of 18 and 21. If you enter before your 22nd birthday, you can stay up to 18 months. You may not think of yourself as a survivor of crime, but if you have experienced abuse, assault, hate crimes, gang violence, robbery, or domestic violence, you are a survivor. If you are a survivor of sex or work trafficking or if you were commercially sexually exploited, you are a survivor. Audre's is a transitional program and residents share a house with a live in House Director and work daily with coaches to reach their goals.

The Doorway: The Doorway is a Rapid Rehousing program that provides rental assistance and support as clients stabilize through employment or other income sources and prepare to take over the rent on an apartment. To connect to the Doorway, you need to connect to the Community Queue (pronounced "Q") for Housing. To do this, connect with a navigator from Sacramento Steps Forward or call Wind Youth Services at 916-561-4900 to make an appointment to get on the Community Queue. Once you are on that list, give us a call or complete this form so we can get you on radar. The wait for the Doorway can be long.

Current Housing
The following questions us find the programs you are eligible for. It's important to know that many of Sacramento's housing programs require applicants to meet a strict definition of homelessness. To get in these programs, applicants must be in shelters or sleeping on the streets or in a place not intended for habitation (like a car). In fact, getting into a shelter can be a first step in securing long term affordable housing. There are some programs that can serve you if you are couch bouncing or trapped in a bad situation. Often it is best to share that you are homeless or unstably housed. We can learn more from you on the phone and ensure you are explaining your current situation in a way that ensures you are eligible for the most possible housing programs.
