Adults Toward Independent Living:

designed facilities that allow them to manage their own affairs while sharing the costs of attendant care and home management.
San Jose CityTeam provides hot meals, safe shelter, showers, and clean clothing to our area's homeless population as well as recovery programs for men and women seeking to transform their lives from addiction to freedom. This includes Heritage Home, which provides housing and services for homeless pregnant women and their newborns.
