Helping our homeless neighbors
With 4,350 homeless people in San Jose in the 2017 survey, three-quarters of them unsheltered, we have our work cut out for us!
Helping Our Homeless Neighbors
Front Door Communities supports and serves homeless and at-risk men and women in downtown San Jose. Our current programs include a lunch bag distribution and a women's drop-in center. We also partner with community organizations to provide food, showers, haircuts, healthcare and other necessities.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
You may support us financially, but we also gladly accept clothing and toiletry donations and always need volunteers to help with our programs. Browse our web pages to learn about us.
MaKING A DIFFERENCE
“I love the group of ladies at the table who lift up my spirits and the comradery I can expect from each. If one of us is not in a lifted mood, we are all concerned! I love the happy people, love the food, love the clothes. Bless you!”
"This is truly survival assistance - the lunches and showers, too. You know, some folks rely on these lunches as the only food they have for the whole day." YAS and HC

Men and women come to the Lunch Bag program four mornings a week for a bag lunch and sometimes extras such as toiletries, laundry soap, dog or cat food, shoes, socks, and extra donated food such as peanut butter, pastries or pizza. Over 25,000 bag lunches are distributed yearly.

Lifted Spirits provides homeless women respite from the streets three afternoons a week. We strive to nourish bodies and souls. We serve a hot lunch, in addition to providing grocery items.
Women can shop for free clothing in our Oh La La boutique, where we also provide toiletries and much-needed hygiene items. Showers and light laundry services are available Monday and Friday through our partner, Dignity on Wheels. We are a community of supportive women, for women.
