An Evidence Based housing program located in Chico, California.

Our model is simple.

We house people first. Once housed, Stairways Programming community members receive supportive services in mental and physical health, independent living skills, employment and education.

Not only is this formula successful in removing people from the cycle of homelessness, it is cost effective.

Our Mission: Reduce the cycles of homelessness.
