Coastside Hope is designated by San Mateo County as the primary community assistance agency for our service area (Montara, Moss Beach, El Granada, and Half Moon Bay). Our ongoing services aim to prevent homelessness by meeting basic life needs for food, clothing, shelter, and fundamental utilities such as electricity. We have been enhancing the quality of life for our neighbors since 1976.
Coastside Hope’s vision is a strong community where neighbors prosper together.
Coastside Hope believes hope belongs to everyone. We listen and communicate to build a strong, prosperous community.
Coastside Hope has been a lifesaver! We've received diapers and wipes every month since my daughter was born. As a single mom, I've really appreciated the support and also a feeling of community during the pandemic. Coastside Hope also makes my daughter feel special during the holidays when she receives a Christmas present from them! She enjoys going there to see friendly faces! We are grateful for all you do for us! Thank you!
As a single mother with two young kids living here on the coast, it has often been a struggle just to make ends meet. When Covid-19 struck and many jobs were put on hold, my situation went from challenging to extremely worrisome. I wasn't able to pay my rent or provide as usual for my children. Coastside Hope helped me with the necessary paperwork and guidance to establish rental assistance while I am working to get back up on my feet. They have been so much more however, they have been kind, supportive, and true to their name, they have given me hope that we are all going to get through this together as a community. I am truly grateful for the support I have received from Coastside Hope. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
