Help Us Grow

Every year we are only able to meet a fraction of the demand for our program.

This new 3.5-acre campus will provide 25 additional homes for families, more than doubling our capacity. The site will include new classrooms and office space along with a playground, a gathering space, a family center, a community garden, and parking. The safety, access to essential services, and convenience of transportation to higher education facilities makes it an ideal place for families to set down roots.

Saranam is an innovative, multi-generational program dedicated to breaking cycles of family homelessness and poverty through housing, education, and supportive community. During the two-year program, Saranam provides families with the services they need to develop vocational pathways and achieve self-sufficiency. Saranam’s two-generational approach – meeting the needs of children and adults – enables families to create a legacy of economic security, breaking generational cycles of poverty.

Because of the generosity and in-kind support from Dekker/Perich/Sabatini LTD, Tierra West LLC, and ECOterra Design-Build we are able to break ground in February 2022
