paster-bainsAs a third generation Pastor, a 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. This year, we are embarking on the next phase of our dream – to build a year-round shelter right here in East Palo Alto – the first of its kind and a long time coming!

With over 200 new faces since the beginning of the year, the shelter needs restocking of our shelves! Coupled with the increase in the cost of supplies, Project WeHOPE is reaching out for help with basic shelter supplies such as paper cutlery, kitchen napkins, toilet paper, shampoo, laundry detergent and many other items.

As an extension of the services, Project WeHOPE collaborates with San Mateo County and Santa Clara County to identify and provide services to this community’s homeless.
