The Lazarus Project Inc.: Since 1998, The Lazarus Project has been the only non-profit organization to provide low or no cost housing for homeless men and women in our community. For those men and women in our community who have little to no income and are on the verge of becoming homeless, The Lazarus Project has become their last hope for housing before being sent to a shelter or to live on the streets. For those men and women in our community who have little to no income and are homeless, The Lazarus Project has become their only and best hope for returning to a life fulfilled as a contributing member of our community. Within our homes our staff creates an environment of success where program participants can attain economic and social well-being by overcoming the issues that contributed to their situation. In short…we provide a hand up – not a hand out. (916) 772-6833

What Would Jesus Do?, Inc. is a 100% volunteer, non-denominational, non-profit organization assisting the homeless and working poor in Roseville, Auburn and Colfax. All funds, donations and resources directly benefit the homeless and working poor in Placer County, addressing their immediate daily needs. From a mobile van in each community we serve our guests a warm breakfast and provide a bag full of food and snacks, 365 days each year at conveniently located sites. We provide clothing, blankets, tarps, sleeping bags, toiletries, laundry soap, pet food, and other sundries for our clients. However just as important as we try to provide friendship and a sense that they are welcomed and loved! We believe the homeless and others in need deserve an opportunity to advance their way back in the mainstream of society. Even if many of the needy we serve fail to achieve this goal, we believe trying is important, and some minimum support should be extended to those unable to achieve self-support. (916) 786-9953
