FESCO, making a difference since day one. In its founding documents in 1986, special emphasis was placed on keeping families together during their period of homelessness. Thus, in addition to serving single mothers with children, FESCO serves single fathers, two-parent families with children, and teenage males as part of a family group. FESCO remains the only Shelter in Southern Alameda County that serves families in all of these configurations.
FESCO is excited to announce that as of July 1, 2018, FESCO is part of the La Familia Network. This means that FESCO is able to share operations costs and provide more resources to our families. All FESCO donations are used specifically to benefit FESCO families.
