Guests of Safe Stay will have access to bathroom and shower trailers, laundry services, three meals a day, and access to transportation for medical appointments or employment opportunities, according to Sacramento County. The shelter also has a gated pet relief area, computer lab, entertainment space, employment development, and housing-focused case management.
The Florin Road Safe Stay community is operated by City Net. City Net has more than 25 employees dedicated to managing the campus and meeting client’s basic needs, according to the county. Employees also provide case management and housing navigation.
Safe Stay guests are required to have a referral through select homeless services providers within the City of Sacramento and in the unincorporated area of Sacramento County.
People without a Safe Stay referral can find other shelter resources by calling the Housing Crisis Line at 2-1-1 and pressing 8 or the toll-free number at 1-844-546-1464.
