Our Mission and Core Values


Mission Statement

Hamilton Family Center’s mission is to end family homelessness

 in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Core Values

Our Core Values inform and direct decisions concerning
client services, operations and community relations.

Housing First
We believe homelessness is intolerable, preventable, and solvable.
Homelessness is solved primarily by re-housing families
quickly and appropriately, and providing limited follow up
to support housing stability.

We passionately pursue preventing and ending homelessness,
creating innovative solutions, and embracing challenges.

Our programs produce proven re-housing results for
client families. We continually develop new strategies
for improving the effectiveness of our services.

We create connections among our donors, funders, supporters,
employees, volunteers, clients, and peer providers to energize
our commitment to ending homelessness.

We are mission driven, accountable, consistent, and transparent.

We respect the dignity, value and potential of all types of families, and
work to empower and educate client families to improve their lives.

Investment in Children
We invest in children to improve our community’s future,
and to break the cycle of inter-generational homelessness.

We value our employees, their success, their work and their dignity.
We are committed to ensuring a safe work environment
and a diverse workforce.

Organizational Strength
We are a stable, sustainable, cost-efficient, pragmatic,
and financially well-managed organization.
