Santa Clara County’s Homelessness Prevention System, the most advanced such system in the region, draws on a robust network of more than 20 organizations to assist low-income individuals and families on the verge of losing their homes. The program, which is co-led by Destination: Home and Sacred Heart Community Services, provides temporary financial assistance, legal support, case management and other services, made possible by a countywide partnership between public agencies, private funders, and nonprofit service providers. Since the system launched in 2017, it has assisted over 9,000 individuals at risk of homelessness, and 97% of those who have received assistance have been able to avoid homelessness within a year of leaving the program.
