Abode Services is a wonderful nonprofit in the Greater Bay Area. They provide services and resources to the community in regards to affordable housing. The staff is passionate with helping the community. Abode believes and remains committed to their mission by eradicating homelessness. Their approach is to use the Housing First Model. And it works! Housing First equates to life stability. It gets people into housing by eliminating the many obstacles one needs to find housing. In addition, staff provides the resources to participants by meeting them where they are at and assessing plans that help them succeed to get them into housing and keep them there.

I'm not only a donor, I've also referred a close friend of mine to Abode's resources. Outside of Abode, she had many hardships to overcome. She was immediately placed in our shelter for a short period until her case worker was able to secure permanent housing for her and her 4 children. She has since been housed for the last 6 months of this review. With the support of staff, family and friends, she now has created an even bigger support group to keep her housed thanks to Abode.
