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.
There are many ways to support Project WeHOPE. Below is list of exciting fundraising events you can volunteer as well as donate.
Art, Wine & Silent Auction: Network with fellow philanthropists on Oct 19 on bid on local art, crafts and even a weekend trip away to Santa Cruz.
1st Annual Silicon Valley Dodgeball Charity Challenge: On Nov 8 dodge, duck, dip, dive and dominate! Proceeds for this event go towards purchasing a Mobile Shower & Laundry Trailer.
4th Annual Homeless Connect: Volunteer your time and help us bring medical, housing and other services to our clients.
We offer food, overnight shelter, dental care, health services, and transportation. 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.
