Working to Prevent Homelessness and Hunger

What We Do


Founded in 1970, Sunnyvale Community Services is an independent, nonprofit emergency assistance agency. Our mission is to prevent homelessness and hunger for low-income families and seniors facing temporary crises. We provide financial aid, food, and other support that prevents larger problems with more expensive solutions.

Sunnyvale Community Services helps families and individuals living in Sunnyvale, CA who are in need of emergency aid. We serve people of all ages, from children to seniors. With rents increasing and food prices going up, the need is greater than ever. Please consider donating to Sunnyvale Community Services. Your tax-deductible donation will go a long way toward helping a neighbor in need.

Twin Pines Manor Apartment Donations

Thank you to all the donors who have supported the Fire Victims in Sunnyvale. We are using staff and resources from every part of our agency to help each of the families displaced by the April 15th Twin Pines Manor fire. Now we are rebuilding our agency’s general operating funds so we can continue to help all of the families and seniors who come for assistance year-round.
