Sponsor a meal at one shelter or service site $1,000
Without our generous meal provider volunteers, each meal we provide costs, on average, $1,000 per site.
Provide personal protective equipment $2,500
To best protect our clients and staff, we are providing sanitation and personal protective equipment including gloves and face masks. $2,500 covers one week of supplies.
Provide enhanced cleaning services $5,000
We have enhanced our sanitation procedures with frequent deep-cleaning services. Please help us offset this substantial cost across our 23 shelter and service sites
Sponsor essential shelter staff $10,000
Our largest expense during this public health emergency is supporting our direct services staff to make sure we have the team we need to serve our clients while empowering our staff to take care of themselves and their families.
Our community is facing an unprecedented public health emergency.
While these are confusing and frightening times, your generosity and kindness in supporting our most vulnerable neighbors has shone through.
So many of you are asking, "how can I help?"
You can help. Right now.
Your gift today goes directly to our efforts to fight the COVID-19 threat in our community.
This virus poses a serious risk to our homeless neighbors. We are doubling our efforts to protect this vulnerable community, but this support comes with mounting costs.
Our expenses for cleaning supplies, professional cleaning services, and protective gear have increased dramatically. Our food costs have also risen without the volunteers who usually provide meals for our clients.
Our escalating expenses impact all of our 23 shelter and service sites in Silicon Valley, "home" to 950 men, women, and children every single night. The costs are mounting, already reaching hundreds of thousands of unanticipated dollars, and will continue to grow.
We urgently need to raise enough funds to support our COVID-19 emergency response efforts.
Please give generously today, knowing the impact of your donation will be doubled.
Thank you to our generous matching fund donors: anonymous private donors, Wells Fargo, and Franklin Templeton.
