    I would test out Facebook ads targeting people in the greater Sacramento area, including former veterans. I would also get in touch with Sacramento media. Pretty much my whole focus would be Sacramento. Find Sacramento journalists on Twitter and tweet @ them. Find local biz owners that are former military. Or have military family.

    Get that local momentum first.
    • Can you get a local "celebrity" of sorts to get behind it?
    • Are there social media influencers who reside in the Sacramento area?
    • Are there local politicians you can contact?
    • Can you be the person who networks and connects all the military non profits in the area so they work together?
    • Can you call up the Sacramento Kings and see if they'll get behind it?
    Pound phones. Pound pavement. Hit up everyone from the Sacramento area you can who might have the ability to influence even 5 others.

    P.S. Here's some starting ground: https://localwiki.org/sac/Regional_Media_Outlets

    It's a bit self centered that being a veteran is one of the two qualifiers.

    Why not reach out to the people with the big lists and influence or companies in Sacramento? Specifically the ones who already support similar causes.

    You want people to take-in homeless veterans? I mean it's a great cause but i'm not sure if this is good for business profits.
