Fourth & Hope operates a 100-bed emergency shelter, which is the largest shelter in Yolo County and operates 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Separate dorms are provided for men and women, 60 beds for men and 40 beds for women. Program participants have access to restrooms, showers, laundry, transportation, phone, mail services, and case management.

Our case management team offers personalized support with long-term goals for each client. Support includes linkages and referrals to housing, employment, health services, income assistance, clothing, benefits, document support, and problem-solving while offering emotional support along the way. This team also provides support for clients in our housing programs. Clients are required to follow a case plan specific to their individual needs.

In 2023, Fourth & Hope provided shelter services for 242 individuals. 41 people were placed in permanent supportive or stable housing. 200 individuals received street outreach/day services. And, 92,000 meals were served to shelter clients and anyone in need of a meal by our staff and volunteers.


Fourth & Hope’s day services are provided from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in a gated courtyard area that is set up for protection from extreme weather. The day services program utilizes a case management model of service delivery with client care coordinators who provide engagement, assessment, and resource/referral services, including linkages to the CoC – Coordinated Entry system, health care services, and housing.

The Woodland Police Department has also created the Homeless Outreach Street Team (HOST) which routinely visits locations where people are experiencing homelessness – on the street, camping, in the hospital, and the shelter. They establish relationships with unhoused individuals throughout Yolo County and provide assessments, resources, and housing navigation services. To learn more click here.


The Fourth & Hope housing program provides permanent supportive and transitional housing at multiple sites. Permanent Supportive Housing provides homes for individuals and families with a disability and who experienced homelessness. Sober Living Environment is a peer-supported transitional housing program with linkages to outpatient treatment. Ongoing case management is available for all housing clients. The program’s goal is to place people into housing as quickly as possible to provide stability and recovery from a crisis.

Last year, 58 people were housed in permanent supportive housing (43 households), and 88 people were housed in sober living environment transitional housing.
