Target demographics: Low-income families, seniors, and persons with disabilities

Direct beneficiaries per year: 7,500

Geographic areas served: Sunnyvale residents and homeless clients

Mission:
To prevent homelessness, utility disconnections, untreated medical problems, and hunger for low-income families and seniors facing temporary crises.
Results:
Our proudest accomplishments are providing financial aid and food to every qualified family/senior, turning no one away because we lacked the resources to help them.  However, we did so by “the skin of our teeth.” Four years ago, we distributed $390,000 of financial aid; last year, $610,000.  Four years ago, we distributed $660,000 of food; last year, $1,335,000.  After expenses over $2.6 million, we ended the fiscal year with $5,750 left over.  Need continues to escalate. and we continually try to raise more money and to obtain more food to meet the most basic needs of the low-income clients we serve.
