Providing For Basic Needs

Connecting those in need with those who deliver.

The Problem:

With the cost of living skyrocketing throughout the Bay Area

too many are struggling to afford basic needs like shelter, food, and health care.

The Solution:

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:

211

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.
