Hearts for Homeless works to build a community where every resident of the Bay Area has access to permanent affordable housing. We connect those experiencing homelessness with the resources, knowledge, and mental and emotional support necessary to navigate the process of acquiring housing. H4H believes that homelessness is a result of an overlap of complex issues that can only be addressed through comprehensive services and advocacy. Therefore, H4H works with partner organizations, stakeholders, and volunteers to provide a bundle of holistic services that address all underlying aspects of homelessness.  Hearts for Homeless promotes community awareness of issues connected with homelessness and engages in outreach throughout the Bay Area. Our members act out of compassion, with the desire to understand and connect with community members who are experiencing homelessness.

Our Mission

Hearts for Homeless is committed to bringing those who are homeless in the Bay Area into an environment where they are self-motivated to live life in a home of shelter and become a productive member of society. We seek to connect the homeless with year-round support and services that can help them turn their lives around and to provide those with compassionate hearts opportunities to serve.

Our Vision

Hearts for Homeless promotes community awareness of issues connected with homelessness and engages in outreach throughout the Bay Area. Our members act out of compassion, with the desire to understand and connect with the un-housed and forgotten. It is also our desire to build a more just and socially responsible community.

Our History

Hearts for Homeless was founded in early 2000. Its basis was formed to have an outreach program that served those with desperate needs such as the basics of food, clothing, and shelter. The program has grown to include many organizations & support groups from a wide variety of people who have deep compassion to help their fellow man. Developing friendships and relationships with those who struggle with homelessness has been the desired result of Hearts for Homeless and we work alongside various local programs to offer support and guidance to help stabilize people’s lives.
