A two-day count conducted in January found over 150 unhoused people living in Palo Alto, of whom only 12 were sheltered1.

In our inaugural year, we are running an independent shelter with space for 15 unhoused women in Palo Alto, CA. Our goal is to engage the community of Palo Alto in creating a mutually beneficial space to form friendships with unhoused people while offering them shelter and services. Our shelter places paramount importance on respect and helping our residents achieve their goals, whatever they may be.

Heart and Home Collaborative is a new organization. We are incorporated and our application for 501(c)(3) status is currently being processed by the IRS. Learn more by reading ourĀ program description.
