Who is HomeFirst: You can check them out on FACEBOOK
Formerly EHC LifeBuilders, HomeFirst has been helping the homeless in Santa Clara County since 1980. We serve individuals, veterans, families with children, and youth at eight sites. In nearly 35 years of working with the homeless, we’ve learned that everyone has the potential to get housed and stay housed. We focus on successful “Housing First” strategies where we get people into their own homes as quickly as possible and then support them so they can stay housed permanently.
Call (408) 539-2100 and select option 1 if you are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or know someone who is, or if you’d like more information on how one of our programs can help you. You can also click this link for more information or call the Santa Clara County shelter hotline (1-800-774-3583) for pre-recorded information in English and Spanish on shelter availability for single men and women, families, and youth. Our services for adults and our shelter are located at the Boccardo Reception Center, 2011 Little Orchard Street, San Jose. You can take bus lines #66 or #68 and exit at Curtner Avenue Monterey Road. The BRC is also within walking distance of the Curtner Light Rail Station.
