Through Home Not Found, the largest cost study ever conducted to analyze the public cost of homelessness and the Silicon Valley Triage Tool, we are able to understand the true cost of homelessness in this County, predict outcomes and use pubic resources to more efficiently help the most vulnerable individuals.
In Santa Clara County, close to 10,000 of our neighbors are without a home on any given night – but this is not a reality we have to accept.
