Animals have a special place in our hearts. Just like people and our planet, they need help, too.



Just like you go to checkups to stay healthy, our planet needs to be taken care of, too.



Everyone deserves equal rights and equitable opportunities.

WeHOPE stands for We Help Other People Excel, and was founded in 1999 with a focus of helping the underserved in our community for the purpose of positive transformation in three areas. The first and primary mission is to help homeless adults rebuild their lives by connecting them to resources such as education, job placement, housing and other services through our Transitional/Supportive Housing Shelter, H.O.P.E. Jobs employment certification program, and the Dignity on Wheels mobile shower and laundry outreach program. WeHOPE also help families in the community through the Kids N.O.W. program, where up to 200 kids are fed each week.
Volunteers are an integral part of how WeHOPE is able to serve those in need throughout the Bay Area. Volunteering with WeHOPE gives our homeless neighbors and program participants much needed support to build a bridge to self-sufficiency and is a rewarding experience for you as well.
WeHOPE is the loving neighbor that believes access to clean water, a healthy meal, and affordable dignified housing is a basic human right. We believe that no one facing homelessness should go without a shower, clean laundry, a healthy meal, or a safe place to sleep, which is why we provide comprehensive services that meet the health and safety needs of the whole person. Through WeHOPE's job training, recidivism programs, and employment opportunities, we bring life skills to people in need so they can maintain quality of life and put them on a path to self-sufficiency.
