We're Here To Help. We Offer Comprehensive Services For All Ages.

Emergency Financial (Rent & Utilities) Assistance

CSA offers financial assistance for rent and/or PG&E bills, as well as providing vouchers to meet some other basic necessities of life such as work clothing and transportation. We also have limited dental, vision and prescription assistance available for uninsured children.

Food & Nutrition Center

CSA offers food items including fresh dairy and produce to those in need. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CSA’s Food & Nutrition Center is open three days/week so individuals and families can receive nutritious food to stretch their budgets and minimize food-insecurity. Nutrition education, healthy eating and shopping habits are emphasized through workshops, flyers and recipes.

Senior Case Management

CSA has a staff of geriatric social worker/case managers to provide in-home assessments, counseling and referrals for community resources to help seniors live independently in their own homes and avoid premature institutionalization and/or unnecessary hospitalizations. For seniors with chronic health conditions we offer intensive case management in partnership with El Camino Hospital with both a specialized social worker and RN on staff. We also provide Community Outreach volunteers to provide escorted transportation and shopping assistance.

Senior Lunch & Nutrition Program

CSA provides hot and nutritious subsidized lunches for anyone over 60 years old, 5 days/week at the Mountain View Senior Center in partnership with both Santa Clara County’s Aging and Adult Service Department and with the City of Mountain View. Entertainment, dancing, bingo, health and nutrition education is offered both before and after the lunch program. Check the monthly calendar for daily menus and activities.

Homeless Services

CSA partners with Santa Clara County, other nonprofit service providers and a collaboration of local faith communities (Alpha Omega Task Force) to reach out to, case manage, and help access shelter and housing programs to assist those individuals and families who find themselves unhoused for whatever reason.

Challenge Diabetes Program

46% of Santa Clara County adults are estimated to have prediabetes or undiagnosed diabetes. Low income and Latino/a, African American, and Asian adults are at a higher risk for diabetes. The Challenge Diabetes Program, funded by El Camino Hospital, aims to improve health outcomes for diabetic and prediabetic clients by providing healthy food and information about making lifestyle changes.

Community Resource Navigator Program

The Community Resource Navigator Program is designed to bridge the gap between vulnerable communities and critically needed services. We accomplish this by training trusted leaders within these communities to help their neighbors navigate services in the areas of immigration, domestic violence, tenant rights and CSA resources.
