Boccardo Family Living Center


The Boccardo Family Living Center (BFLC) is a multi-service transitional housing program for homeless families with children in South Santa Clara County. Located in the City of San Martin, the program provides 26 units of transitional housing specifically designed to serve one- and two-parent households with children. Families pay a below-market rental rate that allows them to build financial resources while they work to achieve stability.

The BFLC is also home to a four-month emergency shelter program for families that operates from December 1 through March 31, as well as seasonal migrant farm worker housing.


During their stay at BFLC, families receive help reaching goals of permanent housing and improved self-sufficiency. Staff and volunteers also operate a tutoring program for the children who live there. The facility is equipped with a community room, an activity room, and recreational areas.


The BFLC serves families, which are defined as one- or two-parent households with at least one minor child. Eligible families must have documented homelessness. All residents must show proof of monthly income that is twice the monthly rent of the unit at SFLC.

The program operates a waiting list for prospective clients.  The BFLC waiting list is currently CLOSED.
