Our mission

To end homelessness and provide financial literacy programs that create wealth in disadvantaged communities.

Our Work

Helping People

It's our goal to help place over 1,000 households in permanent housing per year.

Homeless Services

We Need Solutions

In California, 72% of people experiencing homelessness are unsheltered, which is the highest share of unsheltered homelessness of any state. People experiencing unsheltered homelessness are far more likely to face health challenges, violence and trauma, and longer lengths of homelessness than people staying in shelters. We partner with nonprofits, City and County agencies to work together as a team, helping people live better lives and provide supportive services needed to help stay on track to recovery and stabilization.

Low-Income Housing 

The Solution

Our housing counselors work diligently to locate permanent affordable housing opportunities for our program participants, In the interim, we also provide resources for transitional housing and community cabin living while working toward securing permanent housing.

In addition, we also provide  the steps needed to prepare for permanent housing living, by offering job training & placement, documentation and credit restoration. Together, we create a plan of action to recovery and stability.
