Resilience. Connection. Transformation.
Hope Cooperative (formerly TLCS) has been providing mental health and supportive housing services for people with mental health challenges for nearly 40 years in Sacramento County. As a client-driven organization, we are dedicated to the independence and empowerment of individuals with psychiatric and other disabilities. Our services include intensive case management, permanent supportive housing, life skills education, psychiatric services, therapy, co-occurring substance use treatment, residential support services, opportunities for social connectedness and meaningful activities, and crisis intervention, which we provide to more than 6,000 people in our community each year. Many of our clients are homeless when they begin their Hope Cooperative journey and are now successfully living in a “forever” home. Our 215 dedicated and compassionate staff members are committed to culturally sensitive services that support clients on their path to self-sufficiency.
Hope Cooperative was recognized as the 2015 Sacramento Housing Alliance Social Justice award winner, and in 2019 was selected as Bank of America’s “Neighborhood Builder”.
We provide a full array of mental health services as well as permanent supportive housing for people with psychiatric disabilities. Our supportive services, such as case management, entitlement advocacy, and life skills development are tailored individually to the needs of the clients we serve. Our clients are educated on how to lead responsible, productive, and self-directed lives by focusing on their strengths. At Hope Cooperative, we believe that individuals with psychiatric disabilities can and do recover through our effective and culturally sensitive services. We also provide innovative crisis intervention services such as our 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Respite Center, offering a non-medical alternative to emergency room care for people experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health Triage Navigation Services locates our staff at a variety of access points throughout the community, such as hospital emergency departments, the Sacramento County Main Jail, and the Loaves & Fishes campus, to help individuals struggling with mental health issues to find appropriate services.
We rely on generosity from corporations, foundations and individuals in the community to help us provide support services for over 6,000 clients annually. The work we do is challenging, but incredibly rewarding. We believe that change is not only possible for our clients, but at times, miraculous. Hope Cooperative strives to create hope for our clients and community, so after recovery they can actively contribute to society.
All donations are graciously accepted and go directly towards funding our client-support programs.
Integrity and Ethics
We keep our promises. We lead with honesty and equity in all that we do.
We take new approaches to solving the homeless crisis in our community by offering a wide range of housing-first options for people experiencing homelessness to find their “forever” home, and combine that with the most innovative and up-to-date methods for mental health recovery to ensure housing stability for the long-term.
For our clients, our community partners, and our incredible staff who change lives every day.
Volunteering at Hope Cooperative provides you with an opportunity to meet new friends while giving back to the community. Every year people of all ages and walks of life contribute their time and talent to making a difference in the lives of our clients.
