Untent City Project

The epidemic of Homeless is real in California. Unfortunately, Homeless veterans have become a very real problem, resulting in high numbers being affected and we are trying to make a significant change about this issue. As we all know creating brick-and-mortar houses is very expensive, so we are building a prototype of tiny homes by converting a 53’ trailer into four tiny homes plus a utility room; where these tenants could do their laundry and create social connections. Each home is a complete studio apartment with a private bathroom, kitchen, storage, and living/dining room that converts into a bedroom. Solar panels will be used to power these homes and add to the grid. Basic appliances include a stove, refrigerator, and tank-less water heater among other equipment and amenities.

Involving our veterans will garner a sense of empowerment as they become gainfully employed, engage in teamwork, and give back to the community.

We are hosting a lunch in June for about 2,000 military recruits and their families who will be leaving for their deployment. This event is our way of showing our gratitude and appreciation for their service and sacrifice.

Your help on this day will be greatly appreciated whether in cash or in-kind donations. Care packages will be presented to them in the hope of creating lasting memories during this “Operation Soldier of America”. Your contribution will remind our Soldiers that they are cherished and in our prayers.

Additionally, if you, your family, and your coworkers can pen a Thank You Note, it will change each recruit’s emotional well-being immensely. Take a picture of the Note and email it to the address below. We will print and display them when we distribute the care packages.

As mentioned earlier our organization is non-profit and your donations will be tax deductible.

The event is at one of the bases on Saturday, June 10, 2023 at 11:00 am

Equity strategies

Last updated: 04/19/2023

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
