Hope Solutions is a partnership of faith communities, service organizations, and advocates throughout Contra Costa County. Interfaith communities pool their resources to support Hope Solutions in its mission to heal the effects of poverty and homelessness by providing permanent housing solutions and vital support services to highly vulnerable families and individuals. The goal of Hope Solutions’ housing and service model is to support people to develop their highest level of self-reliance and quality of life in hopes of ultimately breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty and homelessness. Hope Solutions is dedicated to offering high quality professional and volunteer support services to the residents it serves and committing to ensure that it operates with the highest degree of integrity and transparency.

Our faith community members contribute in the following ways:

  • Praying for Hope Solutions’ mission and for the people it serves;
  • Advocating for the work of Hope Solutions to help end poverty and homelessness;
  • Designating a liaison between the member faith community and Hope Solutions;
  • Providing annual financial support of $250 or more;
  • Encouraging participation and support of Hope Solutions programs, services, and events.

  • Invite member faith communities to nominate a member of its community to the Hope Solutions Board of Directors;
