In From the Cold

Stay tuned: Planning for our ninth annual fundraising gala, In From the Cold, is well underway! This year's event is slated for November 1, 2018 at Pivot Interiors in Santa Clara. We will host a cocktail reception and silent auction, all to support our efforts to care for our homeless neighbors.   

HomeFirst helps adults, families, veterans, and youth who are homeless or at risk, find and keep permanent housing. For over 38 years, we have been a leader in addressing homelessness in Santa Clara County. Although we are a close partner with other agencies working in our sector, we depend on funding from corporations, foundations, and individuals to help us serve the most vulnerable of our population. 

HomeFirst serves more than 4,000 people each year using Housing First strategies. We operate Santa Clara County’s largest homeless service center and field the largest shelter and street/encampment outreach team. We also run two family living centers in Santa Clara and San Martin, and operate a shelter and programs for homeless, transition age youth (TAY) in downtown San Jose.

In addition, HomeFirst offers the most comprehensive set of services for homeless veterans in the County, including mental health counseling, employment placement, emergency shelter, transitional housing, and support for families of veterans who are at risk of homelessness. We’re also the largest provider of cold weather shelter services in the County.

Your support of this event is part of the solution to ending homelessness in our community.
