Contact / Support Us


While everyone has been impacted by the economic downturn, some residents lack the support system to endure the loss of a job or reduced retirement funds. Many who request our services are homeless for the first time young veterans, senior citizens, youth aging out of the foster care system, and working families who never dreamed the threat of homelessness could affect them.


Every dollar you give is an investment in our community and will help unfortunate people regain stability and achieve self-sufficiency.


You can give in so many ways, including:

        Cash gifts

        Memorial and honorary gifts

        Gifts of stock

        Matching gifts/employee giving

        Make a planned gift by including us in your will, insurance plan, annuity or other legacy

        Ask your friends to forego traditional wedding, funeral, birthday, or anniversary gifts and instead ask them to make a gift to our foundation


For more information about any of these ways to give or for more assistance in setting up your gift, contact our office at 408-644-6983 or



Gifts of cash enable you to claim an income tax deduction for the full value of your gift. You may donate online to make a secure, tax deductible financial donation right from your computer or send donations to:

Employer Sponsored Giving Programs / Matching Gifts:

Many companies offer matching gift programs to support charitable organizations. Your human resources department can tell you if such a program exists in your company. Generally, they have a form that will be sent to us regarding a contribution that has been made stating they will match the contribution. We would return the form to your company with proper acknowledgement and information required.
