Dignity On Wheels is a new initiative by Project WeHOPE, where the goal is to reach homeless adults throughout the San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties who otherwise cannot make it to a shelter or facility, and provide them opportunities to take a shower, wash their clothes and perhaps receive some minor medical attention and a hot meal. The mobile trailer is custom designed to especially fit the needs of the clients, and to help Project WeHOPE be as efficient in cost and operations as possible. Please help us make this a reality.

The spirit of hope and a heart for the homeless burned inside me since I was young. I have spent 90% of my life in East Palo Alto, and my father was notorious for giving five dollars bills to those in need as he served in our beloved city. Through a generous donation by San Mateo County, Project WeHOPE opened our doors of hope in the Winter of 2009, and have served hundreds of homeless during the coldest six months of the year ever since. Today, we are a year-round supportive and emergency shelter, offering many resources and services to clients. Help us end homelessness together in our communities.
Please join us for one or all the fundraiser and media events. Events are open to the clients and general public. If you would like to know about events for clients at the shelter, visit our Calendar page.
