CLAP was formed due to the lack of equity, resources, and representation for marginalized Sacramento communities.
We provide community reach-ups, viable resource links, black hygiene living supplies, and community connection for Sacramento.
Although CLAP provides resource links and outreach we do not provide emergency or housing search services. We will try our very best to get you to the support to help!
There are several ways for anyone to connect to CLAP below or under the "Contact us" Tab. Everything CLAP does is created or led by our community so feel free to share your voice on the CLAP Needs Assessment. We look forward to hearing from you!!!

CLAP services are led or created with the input of the community most impacted. In 2024 CLAP will continue to do Reach Ups in 2024! These outreaches connect to the community members who struggle with accessing and sustaining basic needs. Fill out the CLAP Share form if you would like to be a part of CLAP Reach Up.
The 2023 Annual Homelessness Assessment Report (AHAR) to Congress provides more raw data on our families here in Sacramento with no shelter and around the United States. View it below
Sacramento has more than 70% of people who are unhoused and have no shelter on any given night. According to HUD, Sacramento makes the top 5 of major cities around the entire United States with people living outside with no shelter. --The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development OFFICE OF COMMUNITY PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT
St. John's Lutheran Church also generates a calendar of daytime respites and places to get a meal for those who are unhoused. CLAP has added it below to download or to share!
CLAP has always been about uplifting our Sacramento youth and families. If there is a family that needs support please share the community connections below. CLAP also has a Community Corner on this site with other community led supports.
We invite community led programs and services to contact us here at CLAP so we can add them to our resource database.
CLAP would love to hear from anyone who would like to support our efforts that go directly to the Sacramento people.
