September 20th, 2019

Abode Services is pleased to announce that it has received from the Sobrato Family Foundation a challenge match grant that will allow donors to double the positive impact of their gifts. Contributions from new donors, those who increase a recent gift, or donors who have not given to Abode within the last 12 months will be eligible to be matched by this grant.   

The Sobrato Family Foundation helps low-income, at-risk communities that are underserved and blocked from opportunities by language and economic barriers, as well as other obstacles.

"This challenge match grants lets supporters increase their effect and make even more of a difference in the lives of the families and individuals we serve," said Louis Chicoine, Abode's chief executive officer. "We are thrilled that the Sobrato Family Foundation's generosity is extending the reach of our community services."

Funding from the foundation will help support Abode programs that improve the lives of 9,100 people each year, including more than 1,200 children. These programs are helping economicaly vulnerable people in Alameda, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, and Napa counties escape the crisis of homelessness and work toward self-sufficiency.
