What We Do

The mission HART of Orangevale & Fair Oaks

is to assist our at-risk neighbors and those experiencing homelessness
to move toward self-sufficiency
and greater independence.
This is carried out by a dedicated group of compassionate volunteers

in collaboration with community members, faith-based organizations and local businesses.

Our Outreach Programs


Mid-Week Meals

Volunteers provide a lunch and supplies each week in Fair Oaks. The weekly Wednesday lunch program is located in the Fair Oaks Library parking lot. The lunch program is also supported by the Foodbank and through non-perishable food donations.

We now have community health workers, formerly known as outreach navigators, at every lunch program to provide additional resources.


Freshen Up Weekly Showers


Youth Outreach Programs

We partner with the SJUSD's McKinney- Vento program to provide resources and school supplies to school age children in our local areas. Each year we hold a backpack drive to gather supplies for these kids living in some type of housing transition. Read about their response

We have also started a new partnership with the YMCA so teens living unhoused can come the the Y, learn to swim, do their homework or play some pickleball.
