We have great news coming at noon today. Stay tuned to find out.


Children of homeless mothers are much more likely to stay with their homeless parent (54 percent) than are children of homeless fathers (7 percent). Children of homeless fathers typically live with their mothers outside of homelessness. Children not living with their homeless mothers tend to live with relatives other than their fathers (46 percent) or in foster care (19 percent). A period in foster care is a strong predictor of future homelessness.


Most children living with homeless parents are very young (42 percent are under age 6) and are therefore physically and emotionally vulnerable in the event of household disruptions.


Our indiegogo campaign is close to launch. We will keep you all updated as we get closer. Thank you for all of your support in giving HOPE to families in Alameda County.


With everyone walking around with a miniature computer in their hand, how is anyone still going hungry?


The Salvation Army Garden Street recently launched our 2015 HOPE 365 Campaign, highlighting the injustice people living in poverty face. At The Salvation Army, we aim to be a transforming influence in the communities of our world by restoring hope and dignity in those who are struggling.

Will you join us in the fight against poverty?


According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, over 610,042 people experience homelessness on any given night in the US.

Chronic homelessness is the term given to individuals that experience long-term or repeated times of homelessness. The chronic homeless are often the public face of the homelessness issue, however they make up only 18% of the entire homeless population according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

About 57,000 or 9% of all homeless persons are veterans

A survey of 29 cities in the United States found the homeless population to increase by 6% from the previous year.

The same report found that 26% of homeless adults suffered from some form of mental illness.


According to Salvation Army Report to America 49.1m Americans (1 in 6) live in poverty in America today.


Did you know that approximately 12.9% of people living in Alameda County live under the Poverty line. That is a huge number. Of those, they estimate that 40% are at high risk of becoming homeless at some point throughout the year.


Did you know that statistics show that 1% of the population of Alameda County are homeless? Of those that are homeless in Alameda County 28% are CHILDREN.


What is Hope In The City 365? Glad you asked! Hope In The City 365 is a new campaign to raise funds to help with the growing epidemic of homelessness among children in our community today. To help combat this growing problem, The Salvation Army in Alameda County runs a 96 bed Emergency Family Shelter. The Shelter is comprised of 16 individual Family rooms that have all been custom decorated by individuals and businesses.
How much funding do we need to raise to operate the Shelter? Well that is another great question.
Here is a small breakdown:
At least 100 people per year stay at the Shelter (must have children or going to have a child)
Shelter is available 365 days a year
16 Individual family rooms with own bathroom
$34,000 per year per room
$34,000 x 16 rooms = $544,000 per year
$544,000 divided by 365 days = $1,490.41 round up to $1,500
The Shelter averages 50 people a night
$1,500 divided by 50 people = $30 per night per person
$94 per night per room for one family
What can we do to help? Well, we have many volunteer opportunities available, but what we really need at this time is financial help. You can adopt a night of shelter:
$30= one night shelter for a child.
$94= one night for a family.
$1500= enough for one night for the whole shelter – all 16 rooms.
$45,000= is enough for the whole shelter for one month.
