Welcome to Muindi Foundation

The Muindi Foundation is committed to building a homeless-free community. To do so, we need to leverage every available resource, and to collaborate with organizations and people who share our belief that homelessness is unacceptable. Every neighborhood is affected by homelessness, and the statistics are staggering. As the largest city in Silicon Valley, San Jose has an estimated 4,300 homeless residents — a number that swells to around 7,000 people for the entire Santa Clara County.

What We Do

We reach out to help meet peoples’ basic needs as they struggle with homelessness. We serve real people, with real stories of struggle and pain. Through individual outreach and service, we learn about the true needs of those in our community that do not have shelter and we adapt our programs to maximize our efforts. We rely entirely on individual volunteers and sponsored corporate events to keep our programs going and growing. Here are our current programs, all of which you can get involved with today! 

Why is Volunteering important?

When you look at the reasons why volunteering is important, it’s not only about the impacts we can make in the lives of those less fortunate but the role it can play in making us more tolerant individuals and giving towards our community. Each of us should be willing to offer our own time and expect nothing in return.
