Home & Hope’s mission is to provide a safe haven for families facing homelessness and help them to regain long-term self-sufficiency. We seek to increase awareness around the issue of homelessness by actively engaging volunteers from the local community. We’re a diverse group of people who passionately believe in our mission. We believe that empowerment -- with knowledge and life skills -- is a core component of gaining and maintaining long-term self sufficiency. Families who stay with us are our guests, who we treat with dignity, respect, and equality.
We provide emergency shelter services to homeless families throughout San Mateo County. We do this in partnership with 30+ San Mateo County congregations. Our day center provides laundry facilities, full restroom suites, play and study spaces for kids, and office amenities -- everything a family needs to feel safe and regain their stability. And here, families can meet with their case manager to who helps them every step of the way -- from arranging a place to stay to re-establishing financial stability. We provide families with the information, tools, and resources to empower them to regain their independence.
