In 2022, Homeful Foundation granted $355,000 to five organizations dedicated to ending homelessness and helping those in need. We’re thrilled to highlight these organizations and projects that Homeful Foundation funded.
Family Promise of Orange County
Family Promise of Orange County helps families experiencing homelessness achieve housing stability. They are developing a House of Ruth in Orange County, California, containing short-term transitional housing in addition to a community resource center for families with children who are experiencing homelessness.
HomeAid Sacramento builds and refurbishes shelter facilities for the temporarily homeless. HomeAid Sacramento is partnering with Volunteers of America in Sacramento County to build a laundry room in their Veterans Apartments. The Veterans Apartments, comprising twelve units and serving 34 individuals and families, did not have laundry services on-site. The grant will enable the individuals and families living there to avoid the trips to the laundromat and to clean their clothing on the property where they live.
Poverello House, located in Fresno, provides people who are experiencing homelessness a pathway out of homelessness by providing food, shelter, and services. Believing in the dignity of every person, Poverello House works to enrich the lives and spirits of everyone they help. Their Village of Hope provides services from case managers and shelter to 80 people per night.
Rancho Damacitas is dedicated to ending hunger and homelessness in the community. Rancho Damacitas is remodeling their Empowerment Village transitional homes for homeless single mothers and their children. These homes will be a beautiful, safe and dignified space where single mothers can find refuge, experience life change and become equipped to take on the next stage in their journey to thrive.
