Basic Needs & Homeless Prevention
Connecting the most vulnerable populations to programs and services
With the cost of living skyrocketing throughout the Bay Area
too many are struggling to afford basic needs like shelter, food, and health care.
We meet struggling individuals and families where they are
to connect them with services that help them meet their basic needs right in their community.
The Programs That Help Them:
Instead of multiple calls leading to dead ends, this free helpline connects those in need with a trained specialist to get matched with the right services. You can also access 211 via text or online. Learn more
