“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 offers three distinctly different programs for families experiencing homelessness: San José Family Shelter, Bridges AfterCare and GlennArt Arms Transitional Housing. Each program encourages families to stay intact while offering numerous services that address their needs for food, shelter, clothing, education, and employment. Since our establishment in 1986, we have had a steadfast commitment to empowering both one and two parent families that are suffering homelessness to reach self-sufficiency.
Family Supportive Housing has been serving the Santa Clara County since 1986. New location is 692 N. King Rd., San Jose, 95133. The new call in hours only runs from 10-11 am. There is currently a wait list.

Bill Wilson Center
3490 The Alameda
Santa Clara, CA 95050
Bill Wilson Center’s mission is to support and strengthen the community by serving youth and families through counseling, housing, education, and advocacy.
With an emphasis on youth development, Bill Wilson Center programs focus on building self-confidence and developing personal assets. With these tools, we believe youth can permanently change the direction of their lives.
A key component of Bill Wilson Center’s philosophy encompasses a strength based approach to youth development. Our staff and volunteers identify the strengths in each youth and build on those strengths as youth are empowered to make positive changes in their lives.
While the agency is focused on youth, creating a healthy, safe community requires that people in all age groups receive the support they need. For this reason, Bill Wilson Center also offers services for adults and families.
For over 46 years, MACSA has been recognized as a leader in serving the Latino community. MACSA’s mission, culture and core values have guided the organization’s culturally proficient service delivery and program development. MACSA’s core values are based on mutual respect and cultural appreciation.
Mexican American Community Services Agency, Inc., MACSA traces its origins to 1964 when a group of community activists joined together to identify ways to help the emerging Latino community respond to injustices such as discrimination, racism, poverty, police brutality, educational inequity, and inadequate access to public services.
MACSA’s first director, the late Lino Lopez described the social landscape of Santa Clara County in the 1960’s this way, “To the average person the impression is that if people live freely in all sections of the community, then they must live free of segregation and discrimination. This first impression is immediately erased when one looks behind the façade that is customarily erected by the community power structure constructed to give such an appearance… Behind the banks and the supermarkets and behind the landscaped arterial ways there are slums, there are hovels, there are hungry people; the discards of society.” Those most affected, according to Mr. Lopez, were Mexican Americans.
Since that time MACSA has remained steadfast and committed to improving the quality of life for youth, families and seniors. MACSA offers programs throughout Santa Clara County, in particular in East and Central San Jose, Morgan Hill and Gilroy. MACSA’s commitment to progressive community change is demonstrated through the numerous youth development programs offered at youth centers, schools, library and community sites. MACSA has earned local, state and national acclaim for its “cutting edge” youth programs.
