Destination: Home is committed to making homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring. The 2015-2020 Community Plan to End Homelessness contains a clear call to action, “Prevent homelessness before it happens”. Through the combined resources of Packard Foundation, Sunlight Giving, Google.org, City of San Jose, and County of Santa Clara, $3.3 Million was raised to rethink the way family homelessness is prevented in our community. Destination: Home will now facilitate a 27-month pilot program with the goal of implementing a countywide homelessness prevention system and preventing all instances of family homelessness.
Sacred Heart Community Services, an experienced advocacy and emergency support organization for thousands of families, will be the coordinating partner along with the existing Emergency Assistance Network (EAN) organizations to provide services across Santa Clara County.
