Hope’s Corner serves a free breakfast and bag lunch and offers showers every week at the corner of Hope and Mercy streets in Mountain View.
What Hope’s Corner does. People are hungry in our community. Even if employed, people earning minimum wage cannot afford both rent and food. The homeless need not only a meal but a place to feel welcomed. Hope’s Corner is addressing these needs every Saturday by serving a nutritious breakfast and providing a bag lunch for each person to take to go. The numbers of people coming to the Saturday meal has grown from a few dozen in the beginning in 2011 to now serving more than 200 people every Saturday. A bathroom upgrade with showers was completed in late summer 2015, and Hope’s Corner now offers free showers every Thursday and Saturday to unhoused people. Besides food and showers, Hope’s Corner provides a place for people to feel welcomed and build community. Learn more about Hope’s Corner at www.hopes-corner.org.
Hope’s Corner began as a joint ministry of Mountain View Trinity and Los Altos United Methodist Churches. Hope’s Corner received 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 2015. Los Altos United Methodist Church (LAUMC) continues to be very much involved in Hope’s Corner by providing use of its Creekside commercial kitchen to prepare food, a food storage area and the support of many LAUMC volunteers and groups.
