Our History: FESCO was founded in 1986 by a passionate coalition of everyday people just like you. These community members/churches banded together to address their concerns about the growing number of families falling into homelessness in Mid-Alameda County. In its founding documents, special emphasis was placed on keeping families together during their period of homelessness. Thus, in addition to serving single mothers with children, your support helps us to serve single fathers, two-parent families with children, and families that include a teenage boy.

FESCO is currently comprised of over 22 churches/community members in Mid-Alameda County, most located/living/working in Hayward. Your impact allows FESCO to provide low/extremely low-income homeless families with food, emergency, transitional, permanent housing, and supportive services in furtherance of its mission to move these families toward self-sufficiency.
