What Causes Homelessness

Homelessness affects people from all walks of life.
People become homeless for a variety of complex reasons.

Reasons for homelessness may include:

Job or Income Loss

Family Breakup

Eviction or Rent Increase

Illness, Mental Health or Substance Abuse

Lack of Affordable Housing

In both the San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, the cost of living is nearly 50% higher than the national average. With such high housing costs, many people earning minimum wage live on the brink of homelessness.
