We are offer a community-based response to south Placer County’s homeless population, providing physical, mental and spiritual restoration for homeless women, men and children. Assisted by more than 60 local churches, we provide guests a nutritious meal and safe place to sleep nightly. Case management and other social services at the Roseville Campus help TGI guests to be active participants in the community to the best of their ability.
A rigorous intake and oversight process, provided by paid staff, includes monitoring for recent TB screen, sobriety and behavioral assessment, provisions of showers and clean clothes, transportation to overnight accommodations at local churches, monitoring and coordination during overnight stays, and access to social and employment services.
