Community Grants

With our Community Grants, we emphasize supporting organizations that provide housing to the most vulnerable members of our community.


Our grantees work to provide temporary, transitional, or permanent supportive housing to local communities that are especially at risk—families experiencing homelessness, youth exiting foster care, and women escaping domestic violence.


We are grateful to partner with organizations such as Ariel Outreach Mission and Global Communication, Education and Art that provide culturally centered, stabilizing transitional housing to women and their children who are survivors of domestic violence or who may be experiencing homelessness. Greater Richmond Interfaith Program, western Contra Costa County’s largest community-supported family homeless shelter, and WeHOPE, who offers hope and shelter in San Francisco and San Mateo counties, are responding to the critical homelessness crisis with committed case managers and services that ensure clients are best prepared to thrive. 3rd Street Youth Center & Clinic emphasizes an evidence-based Housing First model and serves young adults and foster youth by providing food, shelter, and placement in permanent housing.
