PRIDE Museum is focusing our Public Service efforts on the issue of Homelessness.
Since 2021, over 9,200 Clean-Up Kits and Holiday Favors have been donated to underserved communities in San Francisco, Hayward, Los Angeles, Stockton, Livermore and San Jose.
WHY FOCUS ON HOMELESSNESS?
For many of us, homelessness feels like a problem that is too big, too complicated to address. The common understandings and representations of homeless communities are incomplete.
Homelessness is lacking stable and appropriate housing. People can be categorized as homeless if they are: living on the streets; moving between temporary shelters, including houses of friends, family and emergency accommodation; living in private boarding houses without a private bathroom or security of occupancy.
80% of people experiencing homelessness are temporarily homeless due to sudden changes in their lives.
50% of homeless women and children are fleeing domestic violence.
45% of adults experiencing homelessness have worked in the last 30 days.
60% of individuals experiencing homelessness are men.
PRIDE Museum published four COVID-19 Booklets to inform and guide youth!
Over 500 books have been distributed to children and community groups!

Dear PRIDE Museum,
I’m coming up on my two-year anniversary at Space Systems and I’m proud to say all is going well. I’m working on interesting projects and seem to be gaining the respect and recognition of my peers and superiors – I’ve even gotten a few pay raises! It seems I’m beginning to find my niche, and as such, continue to remain ever grateful for the expertise and efforts of PRIDE Museum. – Joey W.
