Family Supportive Housing's San Jose Family Shelter

Address
692 N. King Road
San Jose, CA - 95133

Our San Jose Family Shelter is the only emergency shelter in Santa Clara County that houses 35 one and two parent families for up to 90 days. Each family lives in their own apartment style private room and bathroom. Our 50,000 square foot building includes a commercial kitchen, communal dining room, laundry facilities, health and wellness center, clothes closet, garden roof-top terrace, computer lab where parents acquire and practice technological job skills, library, children classrooms, and state-licensed child development center.

Our San Jose Family Shelter Program focuses on the personal partnership a family forms with on-site Case Managers to develop a detailed customized step-by-step plan leading them to self-sufficiency. In addition to meeting basic needs such as food and shelter, we provide counseling, referrals for housing, employment services, budgeting services, health care services, educational workshops, parenting classes, and ESL education. We also provide evening day care, Voyager Child Development Center, and a mandatory Homework Enrichment Program for all school-age children residing at our San Jose Family Shelter because we believe that an education builds a strong foundation to help break the cycle of homelessness.

After Care Program
Family Supportive Housing's Bridges AfterCare Program provides families who complete our San Jose Family Shelter Program with 12-24 months of additional supportive services that are designed to stabilize families once they are in permanent housing. Bridges AfterCare allows families to stay connected to a supportive Case Manager while they navigate back into self-sufficient living. This added support model has been crucial to families now living independently.

Our Case Manager works with families in Bridges AfterCare to ensure families have a full transition into self-sufficiency and avoid a relapse into homelessness. This program includes case management, education, home visits, resource sharing, access to the clothes closet, access to healthy food, public transportation assistance, and referrals.

Transitional Housing Program
Our Glenn Art Arms transitional housing program offers scattered-site apartments for families, who pay 30% of income, receive supportive services and work to become self-sufficient. Prospective clients must be referred by a Case Manager, must be homeless, must have a child in their physical and legal custody, and must reside in Santa Clara County. Once accepted into the GlennArt Arms Transitional Housing Program, families are offered a wide array of supportive services all centered around increasing income and education to be able to support independent living.

  1. Stayed in shelter during the holidays 2019. This shelter offers no services. No assistance with employment, no assistance finding housing, no counseling, nothing. It was literally just a place to sleep. We could not even eat the food they provided.
