SVdP PFRC Home Visit
SVdP’s Peninsula Family Resource Center is a homelessness prevention program that provides food, rent, utilities, transportation assistance and other needs to the hungry, working poor families and individuals, the unemployed, and seniors through home visits.


“The Society has helped us with food for the last two years.  The grocery store vouchers and bagged food were much appreciated.  You were also able to help us pay our rent and that was a turning point for us.  Since then, I have had a new source of work and I’ve been able to at least assure that rent and food will be there.  We would like to give back at some point.  Thanks again, for helping us at a time when we really needed it.”
