QUICK FACTS In Santa Clara County, an estimated 20,000 people experience homelessness each year.  Of these people, at least 25 percent are under the age of 18. Families with children represent the fastest growing segment of the homeless population, constituting approximately 40% of people who become homeless.  Over 70 percent of the residents at the Shelter are children and most are under the age of ten. One-fourth of all homeless people work, but their wages are too low for them to afford permanent housing. Family Supportive Housing is the only shelter in Santa Clara County that exclusively services families – intact families and single parents with children. CLICK HERE to go to there website.
