The Santa Clara County Homelessness Prevention System has temporary financial assistance available to help low-income residents who have lost income and are unable to pay rent as a result of COVID-related impacts. Eligible residents will receive assistance to help pay off back rent, and may also qualify for help paying for upcoming rent and other basic needs. The amount of assistance will be determined based on the individual household’s situation and funding availability. All eligible residents are encouraged to apply, and priority will go towards assisting the most vulnerable members of our community.

To qualify, you must be a Santa Clara County resident who:

Has been financially impacted by the pandemic
Is at-risk of losing your housing; AND

For the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have relief programs to deliver food to senior and low-income residents who lack accessibility. To date, we have helped distribute over $60K in financial aid to San José residents who have experienced economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and continue to provide assistance for housing, unemployment, and small business loan applications.

Friends of Hue has worked with homeless agencies and local restaurants to provide survival kits and meals to the homeless population. In response to the outcry of healthcare workers in need, we gathered and donated over 40,000 essential PPEs and hand sanitizers to hospitals, health clinics and nursing homes.

Friends of Hue has been hard at work to help alleviate the distress that our community has had to endure through the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of our projects have included:

Distribution of personal protective equipment to our medical workers and our homeless neighbors
Distribution of food to families and to our seniors
Cash assistance for community members who have suffered financial hardship due to the pandemic
Census work and community announcements
Pro bono legal assistance
Public health announcements through zoom webinars and social media channels
Community Emergency Response Training
