SVdP’s Peninsula Family Resource Center

PFRC is a homelessness prevention program, whose mission is to assist with basic survival necessities & wellness support to families & individuals at risk of homelessness. The primary focus of PFRC is to prevent the devastating effects & traumatic costs of homelessness which include physical/mental health issues, loss of days at jobs, & missed school days for children. Together, we can make a difference.

PFRC’s 1,100+ volunteers visit the homes of the working poor, seniors and the unemployed to lend a hand and heart during a time of crisis. The need addressed may be funds to pay for rent or utilities, hunger, diapers, a prescription bill, or transportation assistance – so that an individual can get to work to have the ability to pay bills.

Additional assistance such as clothing, furniture & household items are also provided through SVdP’s five Thrift Stores – over $300,000 in merchandise was given at no charge to our neighbors who are struggling.

SVdP’s model of service is the personal, home delivery. The preservation of dignity is very important. When we are called by our neighbors for help, it is our calling to come to their aid, not ask that they stand in line to receive.

  • 11,000+ home visits
