A Unique Mission
"To provide shelter and supportive services to homeless families in Santa Clara County, to empower them to move from homelessness to self-sufficiency in our community."
Family Supportive Housing is the only shelter in the South Bay Area committed to the entire family. The three distinct services areas; the San José Family Shelter, Bridges AfterCare and GlennArt Arms encourage families to stay intact while addressing their needs for food, shelter, education and employment. A long held commitment to family is the guiding force of the entire organization which resonates in the hearts and actions of the Family Supportive Housing Board, staff and volunteers.
There are few options for extremely low income parents with children to live in our community. Family Supportive Housing offers a respite, an opportunity to make life altering changes, and a system to aid in finding permanent housing.
