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.

She did it!

Board Member Julia Nelson just completed an amazing 7-day trek to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. This was not only a personal challenge but also a challenge to the wider community to support Sunnyvale Community Services in honor of this accomplishment. Please visit her Crowdrise page and make a donation of any amount. All proceeds will support the important work we do at SCS. Congratulations, Julia!
