May Tzedakah Box: The United Effort Organization

The United Effort is a Mountain View-based non-profit whose mission is to help unhoused people move towards self-sufficiency and find a safe home in our community. The United Effort provides individuals comprehensive and integrated services to find affordable housing, public assistance programs, resources and mentors. United Effort's clients are people in our community who are facing extreme financial hardship. Most of them grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area or have been living and working here for many years before experiencing a single bad event which forced them to live in their cars or on the streets.

According to the 2022 Point-in-Time count, 25% of homelessness in Santa Clara County was caused by job loss and another 13% was caused by eviction. Our clients are resilient and are working hard to overcome these challenges to get back on their feet and become self-sufficient again, but they need help and support from their community. They deserve the chance to have a normal life like everybody else and they deserve to be treated with dignity, respect, and compassion.
