Things have changed over the years…
HomeFirst Services has grown beyond our original mission to provide shelter to families and are now Santa Clara County’s largest provider of emergency shelter and support services to single men and women, veterans, transitional-aged children, and, of course, families. Our programs have changed, but our core mission remains the same: cultivating people’s potential to get housed and stay housed!
