Bay Area Chapter
Our mission is to help the unhoused people around the Bay Area by supplying them with essential items. Especially with this current pandemic, prices have been inflating, making it hard for people to purchase commodities. We have been extremely grateful and privileged to have grown up in cities where we don't have to worry about basic necessities such as food and shelter. Giving back to others has allowed us to connect with those in our community and reminded us to be grateful for the little things in life that we normally take for granted.
"Unhoused" vs. "Homeless"
We choose to substitute the phrase "homeless" since it has negative connotations and stereotypes attached to it. We encourage people to do the same since the phrases "unhoused" and "unsheltered" are more humane and do not demoralize others.
