In the 1980’s a group of Woodland residents became concerned about Woodland’s homeless and hungry and began passing out peanut butter sandwiches and bananas in sack lunches. This initial effort grew to become a soup kitchen in partnership with local churches. A short time later, those volunteers could no longer just feed the hungry and homeless and send them back out to sleep in cardboard covers, baseball dugouts, parks and alleyways; there was the realization of a greater need.

In 1985 the volunteers formally organized and created Yolo Wayfarer Center Christian Mission (now doing business as Fourth & Hope), a nonprofit organization. Over the past 20 years, programs have been established to assure that every person has food to eat; a place to sleep; dignity and hope. Our programs address physical and mental health, substance use, employment and income needs, and housing. We operate a 72-bed emergency shelter with a commercial kitchen for hot meals; permanent supportive housing programs; and Walter’s House, a 44-bed residential treatment program.
