About the H.O.M.E. Resource Center

The H.O.M.E. Resource Center opened its doors on December 1, 2017.  This is the first year-round shelter operating in San Benito County and serves up to 50 adults each night. The shelter has two large dorm rooms to separately house men (28) and women (22). It has a community room where meals are served with a TV, large lobby area  and office space. The kitchen and laundry room were completed in the Summer 2019. Two large bathrooms with multiple showers are available for shelter guests.

The shelter is open seven days a week, 4:30 pm to 8 am, each night of the year, and is located at 1161 San Felipe Road in Hollister. Shelter staff provide nightly pick-ups and morning drop-offs at four  locations in the city. Guests receive hot dinners each night, provided by different church and community groups, as well as a continental breakfast and sack lunch. Guests are assigned a bed for the duration of their stay and given a locker to store their personal and hygiene items. Guests also receive a variety of supportive services that include case management, alcohol/drug counseling and treatment services, referral services, and assistance with applying for social service benefits.

The H.O.M.E. Resource Center is operated and managed by Community Homeless Solutions, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.
