I live in Santa Clara county and need help. What rent assistance or food assistance programs are available? We're a month behind already and things aren't getting any better. Please help.

Yes! Assistance programs are available. Here's a few options:

  • Catholic Charities of Santa Clara - Provides a ton of services including behavioral health services, family development, advocacy, economic development, senior programs, and housing services. Most of their housing programs focus on the chronically homeless or disabled. But they could be a great resource.
  • Community Services Agency - This may be your best option. Housing help includes emergency financial assistance for rent and utilities. They also maintain a food an nutrition center which regularly distributes food via their food pantry.
  • United Way of Silicon Valley - You can actually call 211 to learn about basic needs services and get connected to agencies that can help. That number will give you referrals for food, health, housing, and legal services. Their help page includes other resources for financial problems like taxes and credit.

Hope that helps!
