My non profit organization has been partnered with HomeFirst services to cook and serve meal to their clients. I must appreciate their support in providing required infrastructure for us to cook and serve smoothly. From their CEO to Volunteer co-ordinator to staff at different shelters play a vital role in our mission. Without their support we would not be able to carry out meal service. I am glad say HomeFist is our partner in serving the needy.
I have met with and worked alongside the executive team and board members and have been extremely impressed with their professionalism and level of commitment. They are dedicated to serving our most marginalized homeless citizens with dignity and respect. The organization and culture is operated within a structure of compliance and ethics and is managed with efficacy and integrity.
I worked with the HomeFirst executive team and select board members on a high-level project, and was very impressed with the team. Out of 30 NPOs in Santa Clara County that work with the homeless, HomeFirst is one of the very few that serves the chronically homeless. HomeFirst has the largest outreach team, the largest emergency shelters and is the go-to resource when the County needs small-scale emergency shelter for displaced residents (e.g., after a fire). The executive team is smart and personally committed to serving the hardest cases for as long as there is a need. I'm grateful that we have a resource like HomeFirst in our community.
I had a wonderful experience working with Home First at their fantastic Home Sweet Home event. I recognize the good work they are doing for the community and would gladly collaborate with the organization in the future.
I've became a donor for this organization because what they do is so important for helping the homeless in Santa Clara Valley. I will continue to support them because they do a great job serving those in real need.
I attended the Home First Auction in April, and was so moved by the stories that people told. It is obvious that Home First is making a difference in peoples lives, and the success stories verify that. The staff and Board seem to intent on actually making a true difference, and not just doing so for appearances sake. I'm happy to support Home First.
Beginning in February of 2016, I have had many opportunities to interact with HomeFirst staff and witness first-hand their operations throughout Santa Clara Count. The mission they are on and the quality of the job they're doing is nothing short of spectacular. They have many roadblocks in their way, and are fighting an uphill battle against many odds in a daunting task to provide needed life basics to a large segment of the local population. The dedication by all the staff, employees, volunteers, donors, clients and participating local charities is truly amazing and all the hard work is making a difference in the lives of many real people with real names, real faces and real hardships even within the midst of the affluence that is Silicon Valley. My hat's off to HomeFirst, its leaders, and its Board members who are taking on a gargantuan problem and doing a commendable job of helping our fellow human beings. Good luck in the future and Cheers! to all you're doing now, and the accomplishments to come down the road! QR
HomeFirst is a pioneer in addressing homelessness through shelter services, transitional housing and supportive services. It's been around approximately 35 years, well before the current focus on homelessness in media and government. It's one of the most experienced and largest in Santa Clara county, and has a long track record of accomplishment.
The HomeFirst team is doing an incredible job tackling very difficult challenges. They are making a huge difference in the lives of people who have found themselves in difficult circumstances. Seeing people get shelter, then transitional housing and eventually a home of their own is immensely rewarding. And I have been very impressed with the professionalism and caring of everyone involved.
I've worked for and with HomeFirst for many years and am most grateful for the first class work they do on behalf of the poorest folks in our community. Their shelters are top notch and their customer service is noteworthy. Thanks!!!!
