Through the generous contributions of many individuals and organizations, ACF has donated Target gift cards to the Berkeley Food and Housing Project and Solano Community Church to give to people transiting from experiencing homelessness in Albany into housing. We have also provided cell phones and cell service to assist with these transitions. We recently purchased a bus ticket and gave other assistance to a young man trying to get back home where he had a support network waiting for him. We are committed to continue with this project as long as there are people in need.
An Invitation to help those transitioning from homelessness in Albany
The City of Albany has created a partnership, known as Albany Project Hope, with Berkeley Food & Housing Project (BF&HP) and the Solano Community Church to assist those living unsheltered in Albany find permanent housing (or, if appropriate or necessary, alternatives such as transitional housing, return to families, homeless shelters, residential care or other living situations).
Private donations are needed to help those who are relocating and moving towards self-sufficiency. Contributions will be used to pay for personal items such as showers, haircuts, and appropriate clothes for employment/housing interviews, and to provide basic furnishings for those moving into unfurnished places.
ACF has agreed to solicit and accept donations to assist BF&HP in this effort. All donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
ACF aspires to build a coalition of community organizations, faith based, service, and environmental, to join with us on this effort. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how your organization can become involved.
