Thank you for visiting our Meetup.  We are very excited to have you join us.  This meetup was formed by a group of friends who share a love of cooking and of serving the homeless. We are a local 501(c)3 focused on helping the homeless.  

WISH Bay Area prepares meals and gathers toiletries and other things the homeless need, and distributes them to the homeless and under-served in the South Bay.   

There are three parts to our program.

 We cook beautiful meals once a month at Villa LifeMoves Shelter in San Jose. We've really enjoyed preparing these wonderful meals for the residents of this shelter as well as getting to know all our volunteers. Such a variety of talents and warm-hearted individuals!

•  Twice a month we prepare casseroles for the Bill Wilson Drop In Center in San Jose.  We post the recipe, you cook it at home, then bring it to us at the address in Campbell we provide for you.  It is a great way to help teens that are literally living on the street.  A range of services are available at this center.

• The third program takes place at the teen Bill Wilson Crisis Center in Santa Clara.  This center provides residential, short-term services for teens who are homeless or runaway.  Counseling services are available, and plans are made for placement in a transitional center if necessary.  We prepare dinner there, with help from interested teens and then eat dinner with them.  Because we are working directly with children, fingerprinting and t.b. testing are required.  We have all the forms you need to complete these requirements. Please message us if you would like more information, and would like us to email you the forms.

We look forward to you joining us to serve the homeless. We Invite you to Serve the Homeless (WISH).
