Abode Services (Abode) is a national leader in ending homelessness by putting housing first! For the past 25 years we have demonstrated real, measurable progress toward ending homelessness here in our community. We began in 1989 when a small group of dedicated and caring people came together to help families in the Tri-Cities who had nowhere to live. Much has changed in the last 25 years. We now measure our service area in counties, rather than cities, and the people we serve in thousands, rather than dozens. But the spirit that inspired that small group back in 1989 — the belief that everyone should have a home — continues to inspire us today. We’re so proud to be able to tell you that in the last three years alone, we have re-housed 6,000 people — people whose lives are so much better now because they have a safe, stable place to live.
Abode is in the midst of rapid expansion towards becoming the leading provider of solutions to homelessness in the Bay Area. In the last 10 years, Abode has tripled the number of homeless people re-housed, gone from serving one county to 5 counties (Alameda, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Napa and Santa Cruz). Our budget continues to grow significantly year over year, with continued plans to at least double our impact in the next 5 years. We know what works: providing supportive housing to end homelessness. By focusing on doing more of that — more construction of supportive housing, more development of rental assistance programs, and more innovative social services — we will successfully impact thousands more families toward ending homelessness.
