The Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund benefits six regional organizations known as “safety net” service providers. They regularly address the basic needs of vulnerable populations such as senior citizens, children, the disabled, veterans, those living paycheck-to-paycheck, and the homeless by providing food, clothing, safe housing, behavioral health assistance, wellness checks, transportation and medical care. They also work as informal partners with local governments to help manage human service needs in our communities.
These organizations were identified by the cities of Dublin, Livermore, and Pleasanton as best positioned to meet the increased demand for basic needs and services during this time. They have highly developed infrastructure, extensive programming, broad reach throughout the valley, and vast resource networks. Though located in Alameda County, they serve all the communities of the Tri-Valley, including some in Contra Costa County.

From its origins as a crisis hotline in 1977, Tri-Valley Haven has developed over the past 40 years into a vital community resource serving adults and children who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, or homelessness.

Founded in 1971, Spectrum Community Services is a registered, private non-profit organization that assists low-income individuals, families, and seniors in their efforts to live independently. As the agency facilitating the Meals on Wheels Program in the Tri-Valley, they deliver healthy, home-delivered meals to seniors (60 years and older) who are unable to prepare their own food and have difficulty with mobility. For many of their seniors, the daily visit from their Meals on Wheels delivery person is the only human contact they have on a daily basis and therefore doubles as a ‘wellness’ check. https://www.spectrumcs.org/senior-services/meals-on-wheels
