Abode Services Launches "Make a House a Home" Campaign

July 1st, 2016

We at Abode Services believe that finding a home is just the first step toward self-reliance. That's why we've partnered with Handup.org to launch the "Make a House a Home" campaign! 

This fundraising effort will help formerly homeless people pay for kitchen utensils, beds, baby cribs, and other important household items that can transform a participant's new housing into a true home. This campaign is related to our Housing First approach, as we believe that once one has a home, the services that follow will be more effective.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 with the "Make a House a Home" campaign. Your tax-deductible donation now can have twice the impact to help us reach that goal, as Google.org is matching 100% of gifts in the initial part of the campaign.
 
Can you make a donation today? You can give online here: bit.ly/AbodeHandUp

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.
