This includes: 13,000 homeless students, K-12 grade, in Sacramento County school districts- roughly 12% or 1,000 are homeless in the streets or in shelters while 88% are live in doubled up living situations; 3,500 homeless college students at Sacramento State University; 1,000 unaccompanied youth - 40% of whom identify as LGBTQ; 25% of the homeless population are over 50 years of age; 56% are living outside due to lack of emergency shelter and affordable and accessible housing ​ Mayor's Challenge: Mayor Steinberg has challenged each city councilmember to site at least 100 emergency shelter beds in their district, or a combination of shelter beds and tiny homes - for a total of at least 800 new emergency shelter beds to keep homeless people safe. ​ SRCEH's Response: SRCEH knows that City Council members will face a combination of NIMBY [Not in My Backyard]; CAVE [Citizens Against Virtually Everything] and Banana [Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything] mentalities. ​ Our goal is to sign up at least 100 community members in each of the 8 city council districts forming 8 Neighborhood YIMBY Councils - for our 2019 Neighborhood YIMBY Council's Campaign - to educate our city councilmembers that there are hundreds of community members who want to address our homeless crisis with proactive and positive responses and say..... YES! to homeless programs and affordable and accessible housing. ​ Yes! to neighborhood equity, inclusion, fair share and collective responsibility in holding our elected officials accountable ​ Collective Responsibility 5 Campaign Principles Equity Inclusion Fair Share Collective Responsibility Accountability
