Everyone experiences emergencies from time to time. For some Silicon Valley residents, however, each day is a struggle for financial stability and independence. When an emergency hits, they need somewhere to turn for help.
United Way Silicon Valley, eight partner agencies, and seven law enforcement agencies have joined to create a safety net of essential services for all Santa Clara County residents. The goal is to stabilize individuals and families during times of trouble and help them return to self-sufficiency. The Emergency Assistance Network (PDF) provides a variety of services to prevent homelessness and act as a safety net for residents facing eviction, utility disconnection, and hunger. The EAN offers assistance to help families and individuals recover from emergency situations, often providing case management and financial education in conjunction with:
Rent and Mortgage Aid
Medical and Transportation Aid
