Hope Solutions formerly Contra Costa Interfaith Housing
Non-Profit Organizations, Associations, Clubs
On any given night, more than 5,000 people are without homes in Contra Costa County, nearly half of whom are children.
Some are suffering from mental illness and other chronic disabilities who have become an ongoing presence in our public spaces. Others are not so visible, but are still in dire need of assistance: disadvantaged youth discharged from foster care with nowhere to go, single mothers, those fleeing violence, and low income single adults and families without savings to help them weather an unexpected job loss, illness, or eviction. An estimated 17,000 households in CoCo County have extremely low incomes and are at-risk of homelessness, paying a disproportionate amount of their income for rent.
Working with our public and nonprofit partners, faith-based community members, volunteers, and donors, Hope Solutions is firmly committed to ending homelessness in our community. By forming strategic partnerships with affordable housing developers and public/county entities, Hope Solutions provides permanent, affordable housing and valuable support services for families in need. These support services range from mental health intervention to academic and employment assistance. Furthermore, our program models also provide sobriety support, conflict resolution, and parenting skills.
Permanent housing and on-site support services create self-reliant, dignified, and sustainable lives for our residents. We support families and individuals to create their own solutions. We strive to empower them be as independent as possible.
