When you donate to Martha’s, you are helping to provide a safe, welcoming environment for impoverished and homeless families, children, and individuals. We work hard to provide all clients with wraparound services addressing their various needs, so that they are empowered to transform their lives with dignity. These programs and services address educational needs, employment, hunger stabilization, professional case management, and child care.
All contributions made to Martha’s Village and Kitchen are tax-deductible, and your donation dollars stay in the Coachella Valley to help our local neighbors in need. Your gift today can make a lifelong difference, and we cannot do it without you. Together, we are changing lives!
What You Should Know About Martha’s Village & Kitchen
Yes. All the contributions made to Martha’s Village stay in the Coachella Valley to help our local neighbors in need.
Eighty-two cents of every dollar goes to Martha’s Village programs. See our Reports and Financial Statements page for more information.
Different situations cause people to become homeless, including job loss, substance abuse and domestic violence, catastrophic medical bills. Something happens in a person’s life –, financially, mentally, emotionally, physically – to cause them to temporarily lose their ability to care for themselves.
120+ people – babies, families, and single men and women – receive shelter and services at Martha’s Village; 70 beds are for children and infants. Families live in a room together and no family in need is ever turned away.
Residents in our emergency housing program can live at Martha’s Village for up to 3 months. In that time they are working closely with a case manager to obtain a monthly income and acquire affordable and safe housing.
Unlike most shelters, Martha’s Village provides residence, meals and educational programs, job training, children’s services, counseling, recovery services and an on-site medical clinic to help those in need regain their self-sufficiency.
Martha’s Village serves an additional 300 to 500 local neighbors a day with access to a hot meal, our medical clinic, and emergency food packages from our pantry.
Martha’s Village is a professional service center where residents must commit to following a structured program of classes, chores, and house rules. They must search for and obtain employment, and find reliable transportation and housing to continue to receive the services we provide and reach their goal of becoming self-sufficient.
Yes. Sadly, there has been an increase of 30-40 percent, especially for Emergency Assistance to non-residents (e.g. canned and dry goods, payment of utilities, clothing, etc.).
The Administration of Martha’s Village consists of a local Board of Directors; a President & CEO; an Executive Vice President, a Sr. Director of Programs; a Sr. Director of Finance, and a Chief Administrative Officer. Dedicated managers and coordinators oversee each of our programs.
