"I've been a resident in the Los Altos/ Mountain View area for my entire life, and have very strong ties to many parts of our community. I have introduced a new initiative called the Community Caring Program. The goal is to empower positive change with every transaction. Each time a client buys or sells a home, I will donate $1,000 to the charity of their choice, making every transaction an opportunity to give back and build a strong community together"

Below are a few local non-profit organizations that we have worked with and do amazing work in our community.


Mentor Tutor Connection

Mentor Tutor Connection (MTC) is a community organization that trains, supports, and places volunteer tutors and mentors in local schools. MTC tutors work with students at our local elementary and middle schools (Los Altos School District and Mountain View Whisman School District); MTC mentors work with students who attend the three high schools of the Mountain View Los Altos High School District.


El Camino Hospital Foundation - Aspire Program

Giving Our Community’s Children a Better Chance for Healthy Future. The adolescent years have always been tumultuous.  COVID-19, bullying, social media, school pressures, fentanyl, gun violence, and other world events have made this developmental age more stressful than ever and are contributing to a youth mental health crisis today.  El Camino Health developed After-School Program Interventions and Resiliency Education® (ASPIRE), a pioneering intensive outpatient therapy program for youth and young adults, following the tragic cluster of teen suicides in Palo Alto in 2009.  The program has since grown to encompass specialized tracks for middle school students, high school students, transition-age youth (18-25), and youth with habitual behaviors such as drug use or screen addiction.  


Hopes Corner

Hope’s Corner meets the needs of our community by providing free nutritious meals and warm showers to anyone in need. We believe in one inclusive community that cares for all of its people. We couldn’t serve our community without our dedicated volunteers and generous donors. You are the true heroes. Thank you for being part of our shared mission.


Pets in Need

Our mission is to provide animals with loving care and lasting homes, to partner with communities striving to do the same, and to advance our no-kill legacy. 

We accomplish our mission by transferring cats and dogs to our facilities from public shelters in the Bay Area and beyond when they are in danger of being euthanized due to space or financial limitations.
