Emergency Housing Assistance with SVILC
San Jose is 7th among American cities with the highest rates of homelessness and is the most costly city in the U.S. for rental housing. Silicon Valley Independent Living Center (SVILC - svilc.org) provides more than 12 comprehensive independent living services, resource assistance, peer support and advocacy for persons of all ages with all types of disabilities who live in Santa Clara County. The funds from Caring Hands will provide last-resort financial assistance to cover such essential costs as housing application fees, security deposits, emergency one-month rent or mortgage payments, and/or simple accessibility modifications to increase the number of low-income individuals with disabilities we can house in safe, affordable & accessible units.
