This emergency overnight shelter was developed to respond to crisis situations and to meet the immediate needs of getting homeless youth into a safe living situation. In 2000, Wind opened a small six bed shelter in Carmichael. The need far exceeded the original number of beds and in 2004, Wind relocated the shelter to a 12 bed facility in a quiet neighborhood of North Sacramento. Last year the shelter served 165 unduplicated youth who ranged in age from 12 to 18. The walls are decorated with the art and hand prints of the kids who have used the Wind House.
Using the shelter is strictly voluntary. More than 90% of the kids who have been housed in the shelter exit to a safe alternative. The average length of stay is six weeks, but some situations require longer lengths of stay.
