Abode Services to Participate in East Bay Gives on May 3

April 1st, 2016

Abode Services is excited to participate again this year in East Bay Gives, a 24-hour online fundraising event. East Bay Gives is sponsored each year by the East Bay Community Foundation, an Oakland-based philanthropic leader that supports the work of nonprofit groups in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

East Bay Gives 2016 will operate for one 24-hour period only on May 3, beginning at 12:01 a.m. (a minute after midnight) and ending at 11:59 p.m. the same day.

Donors on May 3 can give online to Abode Services at www.eastbaygives.org. Abode Services' web page for East
Bay Gives can be found by clicking here.

Abode Services was one of about 360 nonprofit organizations that raised a combined total of $649,000 in the 2015 East Bay Gives session, and we're excited to join the 24-hour event again this year.

If you're unable to give on May 3, you can still make a secure donation to Abode Services by clicking here. You can make that donation knowing we will put it to use right away to benefit members of our community.

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.
