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, and mail services.

Additionally, our Behavioral Health Program led by a licensed clinical social worker provides intensive case management and clinical services for all program participants. The team offers specialized support with long-term goals including housing opportunities, medical, mental health, recovery resources, 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 2021, Fourth & Hope provided shelter services for 280 individuals. Fifty people were placed in permanent supportive or stable housing. 238 people received street outreach/day services. And, 50,000 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 am to 5:30 pm in a gated courtyard area that is set up for protection from extreme weather, as well as health screening, social distancing, and sanitation protocols. 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 partners and the individuals who are experiencing homelessness throughout Yolo County. Services include assessment, resources, and housing navigation services.
