Midtown is a blessing, especially to young mothers like me living here in Silicon Valley

How do families end up homeless?

1 in 3 U.S. adults struggle to pay expenses

Due to the high cost of living, many working families lack the savings required to meet the emergency expenses that we all endure at some point. For many families even a modest car repair, missed day of work, or employment gap can be financially devastating causing them to lose their home.

Families who are able to consistently pay rent encounter trouble affording a security deposit, first and last month’s rent, and moving expenses, which can total over $10,000 out of pocket. This is how families who can afford their monthly rent still end up homeless. If you are in this situation or worried this may become your situation contact us immediately.

Medical expenses

Surprise medical expenses can empty even the fullest of savings accounts, and for those without savings the debt can be devastating.

Missed work

Missing even a day of work can make rent unaffordable, we can help you make up the difference.

Surprise expenses

A single unplanned home expense, car repair, or other unexpected expenses can cause families to lose their home.

Loss of employment

Lost employment is often the first step in the cycle of homelessness and long-term unemployment.
