Homeless Resource Helpline
A group of community providers in Placer County who offer shelter and housing for homeless individuals and families have partnered together to launch a new service to help coordinate their resources.
- Homeless individuals/families are asked to call the Homeless Resource Helpline at 833-3PLACER:
- For a referral to Emergency Housing AND/OR
- To provide their information to get on a centralized housing list.
- As housing dedicated to homeless individuals and families becomes available, participating community partners will draw from this list to contact those who may be eligible.
- The phone call does not guarantee housing.
- They should continue to reach out to other resources in the community.
- If at any time their contact information changes, they should call back to get it updated.

County Housing Programs
In an effort to support individuals with different housing needs, Adult System of Care manages a Transitional Housing Program, a Permanent Supportive Housing Program, and two HUD (Department of Housing and Urban Development) Subsidized Permanent Supportive Housing Programs to assist individuals who have a diagnosed mental illness, are homeless, and are residents of Placer County.
Transitional Housing Program
Placer County Adult System of Care currently works in collaboration with AMIH (Advocates for Mentally Ill Housing, Inc.) to provide a safe, group living environment with supportive services, to participants who are living with a mental illness and qualify for the transitional program. The Housing Collaborative has homes located in Auburn, Rocklin, and Roseville. Participants reside in a group living situation and participate in both independent and group activities that promote independent living and self-sufficiency.
