Continuum of Care

Donate


Our work could not happen without the generous donations of community members. Every donation helps to further increase the quality and level of services we provide.

Housing Security Fund

As a senior on a fixed income, James couldn't pay all his bills after a steep rent increase, and he eventually lost his housing. After months of hard work, he has new affordable housing lined up but those unpaid bills now stand in the way of James getting out of a shelter and into a home where his grandchildren can visit.
Your donation to the Contra Costa Housing Security Fund can help end homelessness for James and others like him.
This community fund covers costs that can prevent many people, including seniors, veterans and families, get back into housing, and protects property owners who offer these screened renters an opportunity.

You can make tax deductible monetary donations to the Contra Costa Housing Security Fund to help cover costs that can prevent many people, including seniors, veterans and families from getting back into housing and protects participating property owners who offer these screened renters an opportunity.
