Where we work

The dedicated Insight Housing team serves clients in seven northern California counties: Alameda, Amador, Contra Costa, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Joaquin, and Solano. This regional approach allows us to be flexible and adapt to the needs of the individuals we serve. 

There are 171,521 people experiencing homelessness in California. The high cost of housing in California impacts everyone, but communities of color, LGBTQ+, and other marginalized groups are disproportionately affected by housing insecurity. ​We need​ immediate assistance and long-term solutions​ to take care of our neighbors​.


It feels like home now. A bed, a TV, and a kitchen. I’ve been doing a lot of cooking here… just trying to invent new stuff. I’ve been getting creative and having fun.
