We need your immediate help. Negotiations between Sacramento city and county are underway right now to get needed resources to the city’s homeless. NCJW leadership has sent a letter to each member of the Board of Supervisors urging them to take necessary action towards addressing the homelessness crisis in Sacramento. They need to hear from their constituents now!
Please send a communication ASAP to them. Your supervisor’s email address and a sample text are below. Feel free to personalize your letter. Check out this powerful letter written by NCJW member, Beryl Michaels. Email us your Board of Supervisor letter and it may get featured on our website!

EMAIL FOR SUPERVISOR
SUBJECT: Support homeless services partnership agreement with city of Sacramento
EMAIL: (Insert Supervisor’s email address here)
Dear Supervisor (Insert Supervisor’s last name here),
I am a constituent of yours and a member of the National Council of Jewish Women and I am deeply distressed by the homeless crisis in Sacramento County which includes the City of Sacramento. I understand that the County is responsible for mental health and social services throughout the county and that available resources for the unhoused in the Sacramento region are not adequately reaching the roughly 75% of the homeless population that lives within the city of Sacramento. I urge you to prioritize coming to a partnership agreement with the city to provide intensive outreach mental health and social services for the city’s unsheltered population.
I will be following the Board’s progress in doing so.
