According to the 2015 Solano County homeless count, there are 1,082 homeless people in Solano County, 73% of whom are unsheltered. They live on the streets or in abandoned buildings, vehicles or encampments. Of these 1,082, 402 live in Vallejo and 360 of them are unsheltered.
Homelessness in Vallejo, as in the rest of the country, is a tragedy. The inhumanity and indignity of homelessness are unacceptable, and we cannot ignore it.
At Fighting Back, preventing more families and individuals from experiencing that tragedy is extremely important, as is finding homes for those who need them.
Fighting Back Partnership is invested in ending homelessness in Vallejo by curtailing evictions and keeping families and individuals in their homes. Through our Family Resource Centers (FRC), hundreds of families and individuals have retained their homes, acquired long-term support for food and other essentials, and have moved from crisis to stability. Under resourced families often have few reserves to respond to financial emergencies, but with the support of our FRCs, families stay in their homes during a period of hardship while working with our case management staff to build long-term plans for increased stability and advancement.
Fighting Back Partnership operates four (4) FRCs throughout Vallejo and each offers:
