During Affordable Housing Week in May, we got to step into the new kitchen at Hope’s Corner in Mountain View. A lot of time, teamwork and love went into making a kitchen that serves hundreds of our most vulnerable neighbors each week – Google, Sobrato Family Foundation, Second Harvest Food Bank and others stepped forward in a big way. Housing Trust contributed to the effort with a $240,000 forgivable loan.
It was also great to see friends like Leslie Carmichael, member of the Housing Trust family Sandra Murillo and Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian at the ribbon cutting.
“As our region continues to prosper, people of modest means are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet,” Supervisor Simitian said. “Having a single location where folks can get a meal, find a warm place to lay their heads, and get job-training will be a true game-changer.”
Hope’s Corner counts on donations and volunteers for its efforts – you can learn how to volunteer for Hope’s Kitchen here.
