Two Abode Services participants -- Anthony and Carolyn -- appeared in the event's Journey Home Breakfast video, illustrating the importance of the community's support by sharing their individual stories of homelessness and their journeys back to a home. The video can be seen on our website and Facebook page.
More than 300 guests attended the March 4th fundraiser at the Fremont Marriott to give donations of support and hear about the progress Abode Services is making toward ending homelessness. The support we received at the breakfast ensures our programs can continue to serve more than 4,400 adults and children each year.
If you missed the breakfast, there's still time to make a secure donation to the fundraiser by clicking here. You can make that donation knowing we will put it to use right away to benefit members of our community.
"Abode Services is successful because, over the years, community members have invested in our work," Abode Services Executive Director Louis Chicoine said. "When people partner with us, they entrust us with investments of resources because we are accountable to doing what we say we'll do."

About Abode Services
Established in 1989, Abode Services' mission is to end homelessness by assisting low-income, un-housed people, including those with special needs, to secure stable, supportive housing; and to be advocates for the removal of the causes of homelessness in Alameda, Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Santa Cruz counties.
Abode Services offers programs that combine housing and services to assist families and individuals who are homeless in establishing stability and independence. These programs include emergency services, housing, and supportive services (such as case management, vocational counseling, life skills training, veteran services, and children's programs). Last year, Abode Services assisted more than 4,400 people and ensured that, on on any given night, more than 2,000 people slept in a home rather than on the street.
