Abode Services' mission is to end homelessness by assisting low-income, un-housed people, including those with special needs, to secure stable, supportive housing; and to be advocates for the removal of the causes of homelessness.
We develop and implement innovative programs to end homelessness. Our agency is built on the principles of Housing First, a proven approach that has demonstrated results far superior to the traditional approaches to homelessness.
Our 2016 Journey Home video features participants Anthony and Carolyn, who turned their lives around after receiving stable, secure housing.
We were founded in Alameda County in 1989 when a small group of people came together to address a growing problem with family homelessness in the Tri-City Area.
Since then, we have expanded our impact throughout the Bay Area, serving more than 4,400 adults and children each year in Alameda, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and San Mateo counties. Our results show how effective our work has been in ending homelessness for vulnerable adults and children throughout our community.
Abode Services is proud to be a double bottom line agency with a commitment to effective financial management that is transparent to donors and funders and ensures the long-term stability of our programs.
