help end homelessness
Donate now to connect local unhoused neighbors with housing
Your gift to Housing Matters ends homelessness for families and individuals in Santa Cruz County by getting them into permanent housing. With 35 years of experience and nine different housing programs, we are committed to empowering our unhoused neighbors to reclaim the dignity that can only come with stable housing.
• Our four homeless shelters make up approximately half of the shelter beds in the entire county
• Our family shelter is the largest emergency shelter for families in the county
• As the largest local nonprofit working on homelessness, we join together unhoused neighbors, landlords, supporters, and service professionals to resolve homelessness together
As a partner to our unhoused neighbors, your donation empowers them to rediscover their confidence.
