We need your expertise at the Emergency Interim Housing site on Bernal and Monterey Road!

The Emergency Interim Housing (EIH) provides short-term shelter to unhoused adults in a safe and secure environment, in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 while addressing the homeless crisis in Santa Clara County.

By providing art workshops, you will help participants build stability while bridging from homeless to housed.




Workshops will be scheduled Monday to Saturday from 9am-6pm. The workshop will be virtual. We ask that you provide materials by coordinating a drop off at our office.

Currently, there are 50 participants at EIH. While there may not be 50 participants at the workshop, we ask that you provide enough materials for 50 participants.

Mission Statement

HomeFirst confronts homelessness by cultivating people’s potential to get housed and stay housed.
