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 2012 (July 2011 – June 2012), 100% of qualifying families (895 families) needing food received it.
Between Senior Brown Bag, Family Harvest, and the Emergency Pantry, we distributed more than 329,000 pounds of food in FYE 2012. This would not have been possible without the generous support of so many Coastside neighbors.
