General Information:
Fourth and Hope's mission is to change lives; to provide a continuum of care for the hungry and homeless moving them from the street to stability in Woodland and Yolo County. We provide meals, shelter, rehabilitation, job training and, most importantly, what's often a last chance for a real, sustainable life. We are a community safety net – and are in the business of helping people rescue themselves. Mission Statement: To feed, clothe and shelter those in need and to show the love of Jesus Christ in words and actions.   Programs Provided: Emergency Shelter The Emergency Shelter is the gateway to finding a solution to homelessness. Established in 1985 and expanding services into our new facility in 2006 at Fourth and Hope, individuals and families in crisis come to the Emergency Shelter to identify their needs and be connected to appropriate resources. Family Transitional Program The Family Transitional Housing Program has provided the security of shelter and support services to more than 2000 children and their parents since being established in 1989. These families receive intensive case management services beginning with an extensive assessment to analyze the family's history and events leading up to the current state of homelessness. The goal is to address the identified issues, enhance parenting and life skills, assist the family in securing economic independence through employment or other benefits programs and ultimately, have permanent housing secured. Due to the incredible need for housing, the organization has expanded its housing program to include single individuals, including Veterans, and the mentally ill who would have otherwise remained homeless. By developing partnerships with property managers and property owners, we have reduced barriers to accessing housing and increased our housing units from 12 to 55 (an increase of 458%) in less than 2 years. This emphasizes our commitment to reducing homelessness in our community and throughout Yolo County. Treatment Walter's House Walter's House operates a Therapeutic Community Model which helps clients begin to understand how their decisions and behaviors effect everyone around them which addresses distorted thinking patterns and low self-opinion and allows clients to experience recovery from addictive behaviors. Walter's House is a residential substance abuse program with a 60% success rate: a life free from drugs, with employment and stable housing.


Helpful Definitions For Fourth and Hope:
Transitional housing is affordable supportive housing designed to provide housing and appropriate support services to persons who are homeless or who are close to homelessness. The transition is to help them be more self sufficient to move towards independent living on their own. Transitional housing locations are oftentimes called Halfway Houses. The naming of the two (Halfway House OR Transitional House) is oftentimes interchangeable.

Many Transitional Housing programs are subsidized and are income based. Income based transitional housing generally charges 30% of your income for rent when you do have income. Contact the transitional housing facility to see if this applies.

Services provided at transitional housing facilities varies from substance abuse treatment, to psychological assistance, job training, domestic violence assistance, etc. The assistance provided varies, but it is generally affordable and low cost housing. Read the descriptions of each of the transitional living locations for more detailed information. Transitional housing facilities also may or may not assist with alcohol and/or drug substance abuse treatment.Drug And Alcohol Rehab programs are intended to treat alcohol and/or drug dependency.  The cost of participating in one of these programs and the method of treatment range significantly. The database operated on this website only includes residential rehab programs (not outpatient programs). We also provide Access to Recovery (ATR) Grant programs for substance abuse treatment.
