HomeFirst provides opportunities to unhoused adults in a safe, private, and secure environment.

We are looking for someone who can teach our participants how to properly care for their furry friends. Information would include tips for proper grooming, diet, how to control pests, common pet ailments, resources for pet needs...etc.

By providing a workshop that teaches participants how to care for their companion, you will help participants reduce their pet expenses and build skills they will need when they secure housing.

We operate at four sites in San Jose Area.

We hope you will join us in supporting our unhoused neighbors.

Mission Statement

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


HomeFirst envisions a community where everyone has a home.

HomeFirst is about more than just shelter. Through award winning housing programs and effective support services, HomeFirst champions quality of life in our community and stability for people in need by providing housing, hope, and opportunity.

Whether we’re assisting a family as they move into housing or helping someone acquire the skills and confidence needed to start a new job, at HomeFirst we plant seeds in the people we serve, and we gently nurture those seeds as they grow.
