The Health Trust Family Resource Center

Our work includes direct services, grant making and policy advocacy. It is organized under three initiatives: Healthy Eating, Healthy Aging and Healthy Living. Our work also includes Destination Home, a public-private partnership galvanizing our community to end chronic homelessness in Santa Clara County.
 
The Healthy Living Initiative targets families and individuals in vulnerable communities and provides the services and connections people need to enjoy the healthiest lives possible.
 
The mission of the Healthy Eating Initiative is to ensure that every resident in Santa Clara County and Northern San Benito County is able to conveniently purchase and consume affordable, quality, nutritious food.
 
The mission of the Healthy Aging Initiative is to ensure that older residents of Santa Clara County and Northern San Benito County have access to coordinated healthcare and supportive services in the setting most appropriate to their needs.
 
The mission of Destination: Home is to end chronic homelessness in Santa Clara County.
