With the downturn in the economy, the need for community assistance has increased. Homeless shelters and family assistance centers are full, stretching their ability to feed, clothe and offer support to the many people who use their facilities. In 2012, Assistance League of San Jose set up a program to help Family Supportive Housing. We are now also volunteering time at Cityteam San Jose which provides support to the city’s homeless population.
Family Supportive Housing offers transitional housing, child care, classes and support services for families struggling to survive difficult times.
