Meet Our Community

Coastside Hope's mission is to offer basic life necessities with dignity and hope to all those making the San Mateo Coastside their home.

Our client base is more than 10% of the population of the mid-coast and includes: the working poor, the homeless, seniors living below the poverty level, the disabled, and families and/or individuals in crisis.

The primary recipients of our food programs are needy families with children. We offer hope on a non-discriminatory basis: in Fiscal Year Ending 2013 (July 2012 – June 2013), 100% of qualifying families (943 families) needing food received it.

Between Senior Brown Bag, Family Harvest, and the Emergency Pantry, we distributed more than 383,000 pounds of food in FYE 2013. This would not have been possible without the generous support of so many Coastside neighbors.
