Helping America's most vulnerable.

Mather Community Campus

Come With Hope. Leave With a Future.

Mather Community Campus provides housing and employment services to homeless individuals and families working toward self-sufficiency.

This one-year program is a collaborative effort with public and private agencies.


Mather Community Campus aims to help formerly homeless individuals and families successfully transition into self-sufficiency. A therapeutic staff of employment professionals help students through individualized services, including:

  • Employment counseling and referrals
  • Educational services
  • Credit repair
  • Financial education
  • Parenting classes
  • Assistance in securing permanent housing
  • Referrals to a wide-range of community resources as needed.

Community Spirit

Mather Community Campus is dedicated to enriching the lives of its students. The Residents’ Council, Leadership Team and Community Advisory Committee ensure the quality of our services. All members of our campus are involved in maintaining a clean and sober community. Activities that support students in recovery include alcohol and drug education workshops, nearby 12-step groups, and clean and sober recreation activities. All residents participate in drug testing.


Students live in private single and family units with around the clock support.


To be eligible for entry to Mather Community Campus, students must be referred by a Sacramento county homeless shelter, drug and alcohol treatment facility, or approved transitional living program.


Students pay affordable rent and program fees for their housing, utilities and numerous services. Students on the singles site also pay food fees.

A community that supports, empowers, and uplifts the human spirit.

"When I came to Mather, I only knew 2 things: I needed to stay clean and sober, and I needed to find employment. Mather helped me do both."
