About Home Start
Home Start is virtually the only transitional housing program in Placer County serving
families exclusively. We accept families headed by
single fathers, single mothers, couples with children
and even grandparents raising children. Preference is
given to Placer County residents.
Families fill out an application, agree to the program
conditions, and live on-site for one year. They must attend all
case manager mandated meetings, therapy sessions, work, save,
live on a budget, attend GED classes if not a high school
graduate, and remain drug and alcohol free. Smoking is not
allowed on the premises.
Families remain under the case management of Home Start for
an additional year after graduation.
