Becoming Hamilton Families

Dear Friends,

We are excited to announce that Hamilton has undergone a transformation to better achieve our mission of ending family homelessness.

To do that, we have evolved – beginning with a new name that captures the spirit of Hamilton – a data driven, family focused organization dedicated to preventing homelessness whenever possible and to ensuring families experiencing homelessness get back into housing as quickly as possible. A year in the making, we took careful consideration to ensure our core values, mission and vision to end family homelessness by 2020 remained at the forefront of who we are. We would like to assure you that the programs and services we provide have not changed.

So why Hamilton Families? Because we needed a name that included all of who we are. We have grown from just a “center” in the basement of a church to a comprehensive organization with three robust programs, across four locations in San Francisco and Oakland. As thought leaders in the field, we are proud to utilize innovative Housing First models of ending family homelessness and look forward to sharing our blueprint with others in the larger Bay Area and nationwide.

This next step in our journey signifies a bold new direction for us as we continue growing and refining our strategy. Critical to this effort is the support of our Hamilton Families community. We are so grateful to you for your ongoing support and for continuing to advocate on behalf of the families we serve by spreading awareness of the devastating impact family homelessness has on families and children. We are confident that together, we can end family homelessness.HF-Logo_mark-orange-web-large

Team Hamilton
