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. Currently we are looking to raise at least $50,000 in donations to help with start-up seed and kick-start this project by January 2015 (if not sooner!). Please help us make this a reality. Learn more
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.
Join us at one or more of the many events this holiday season. Volunteer your time, fundraise for Project WeHOPE or donate items to help clients get through the winter.
