What We Do.  

People are hungry in our community.  Even if employed, people earning minimum wage cannot afford both rent and food.  People who are unhoused need not only a meal, but a place to feel welcomed.  Hope’s Corner is addressing these needs every Saturday between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. by providing a nutritious breakfast and providing a bag lunch for each person to take. In addition, we began offering free showers on Saturday mornings in August 2015.  Our numbers have grown from a few dozen in our beginning in 2011 to now serving over 200 people every Saturday.  Besides food, we provide a place for people to feel welcomed and build community.  We collaborate with Second Harvest Food Bank, Community Services Agency, Peninsula Food Runners, Silicon Valley Bicycle Exchange and others to help the people we serve connect with other available services.  

Who We Are. 

Hope's Corner became an independent 501 (c)(3) non-profit with a nine-person Board of Directors in 2015.  Hope's Corner began as a joint ministry of Mountain View Trinity and Los Altos United Methodist Churches. Our wonderful volunteers include church members, youth and adults from other service organizations and members of the community. 

We are located in Downtown Mountain View, at Trinity United Methodist Church.
