Compassion Communities’ has not been immune to the impact of COVID-19. Due to the uncertainty in the economy, our funds and project have been put on hold until 2022. If we resume operations we will update our website and social media sites. We greatly appreciate your continued support and understanding.

The Compassion Communities Team

Compassion Communities was created to address the growing homeless epidemic in Northern California.  With an increased number of displaced persons in the U.S., the burden is placed upon each city to find a solution. 

We serve those who need a complete and secure place to call home in a safe community. We will coordinate existing city resources and provide the space for volunteer services inside of each Compassion Community. What drives us are our core values which are enduring, passionate, and distinctive beliefs that inspire our culture and priorities. 

We are an organization partnering with California cities and other non-profits to end homelessness by providing semi-mobile housing and community multi-purpose service units to create a peaceful community environment for those affected by homelessness.

Compassion Communities’ housing solution is adaptable, cost effective, and provides both temporary and long term options for homeless housing.

Housing First

The National Alliance to End Homelessness has found that a housing first approach is best. This means prioritizing housing, then working to solve underlying causes of homelessness.

Basic Housing Units: Temporary solution. Four living spaces on a 40′ trailer. City/County water & electricity.

Standard Housing Units: Long term solution. Three living spaces on a 40′ trailer. City/County water & electricity.

Complete Housing Units: Three living Spaces on a 40′ trailer. Self-sustainable and does not require city/county water or electricity to run.

Partnering With Local Nonprofits…

We’re stronger together. Creating and maintaining partnerships is how we help as many homeless as possible.

We will partner with as many local nonprofits and agencies devoted to helping those affected by homelessness.

Our Compassion Communities will be a centralized location where homeless can receive all the services they need to integrate them back into society. More importantly, we will give them the support they need to get their dignity back.

Community Model

Compassion. Rehabilitation. Jobs.

Each Compassion Community, at minimum, will have the following: security, medical staff, maintenance, office spaces, and a Community Wellness Coordinator.

Each Compassion Community will have job opportunities for our residents.

If anyone would like to work outside of our Compassion Community, we will connect them to employment resources.
