Mission: San Jose First has been delivering comprehensive outreach services to the homeless and low-income families for over ten years. SFCSI is a very recent independent offshoot of the First United Methodist Church of San Jose, which has served the downtown community for over one hundred years. We assist homeless and low-income families with emergency services, i.e, rental and utility aid, food vouchers, clothing, transportation and vocational and employment development services. We help clients discover their transferable skills and help write resumes, provide voicemail boxes, and assist them with their job searches.
Programs: San Jose First Community Services programs include Information & Referral to additional community resources, hot meals, clothing closet, access to mobile health van, on-site 12-Step meetings daily, homeless mail address & local phone access for clients, bus tokens, rental & utility assistance. ESL classes. Case management through Vocational & Employment Development department, orientation and job readiness classes.
