About Us

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. We believe that homelessness is a result of an overlap of complex issues that can only be addressed through comprehensive services and advocacy. Therefore, we work 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. 


Heart For Homeless supports & empowers those experiencing homelessness in the Bay Area on their journey towards permanent affordable housing.  


A thriving Bay Area where every member of the community has their housing needs met. 


Hearts For Homeless was founded in early 2000 by Jack Fuller (Founder & President) and Renee Masterson (Co-Founder & Coordinator). Hearts For Homeless was formed as an outreach program that served those with immediate needs such as food, clothing, and shelter.

The program has now grown to become an independent non-profit organization. Over the years, we have worked with countless dedicated individuals who have a deep compassion to help their fellow community members. 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 Bay Area resident’s lives.
