Mission Statement

Grip seeks to address the issues of justice that affect the poor and the disenfranchised or our society, so as to empower all people.


Today, GRIP operates three programs from our state-of--the--art Family Housing and Supportive Services Center in Richmond, California. Integrating comprehensive services, in one, stable, easily accessed location, provides effective ongoing support for families and individuals to stabilize their lives and transition to independence.


Our Family Housing Program provides 75 beds of emergency and transitional housing, on-site comprehensive case management, support and basic services, year-round, for families. One of the very few programs accepting families with teen boys or men who are single parents, GRIP helps all families stay together.

Our newest shelter component, the Permanent Housing Program , houses 8 individual tenants, each living with dually-diagnosed mental illness, and teaches residents to live independently, with continuous support from our Resource Center.


The Souper Center provides free hot lunch to any hungry person, and 3 meals a day to our residents. Most food is donated, a nd meals are prepared and served by thousands of volunteers.

Services and Case Management

Our West County Resource Center provides any unsheltered person and family tailored case management, training and treatment programs on site or provided by referral to our many partners.

This organization is so financially irresponsible that the programs they are in charge of are being taken away from them for lack of proper supervision and financial accountability. (I feel) The person in charge of housing has yet to supervise the properties they are charge of. No accountability of situations occuring but could care less and barely shows up for work and the person in charge of finances lacks the integrity it takes to make sure money is allocated to go where it is suppose to. If you donate, you need to not just give it away freely but make sure it is used for what it is designated for. High accountability is recommended.Ask questions and receive financial reports.
